Preschool

 

Our Program

Bella Lengua's Spanish Immersion Preschool is an intercultural bridge between home and school for young children (ages 2-6). Children learn primarily through play, listening, and imitation. The rhythms of the day provide a balance between free, creative expression and teacher-led group experiences.

Each of our mixed-age classes is led by one teacher and one assistant.  The children range in age from 2 to 3 years old (Los Osos) and 4 to 6 (Los Zorros).  Enrollment ranges between 8 and 12 children in the classroom each day.  Classes are held Monday-Friday from 8:30 am-12:30 pm (half-day) or  8:30-3:30 pm (full-day).  We offer 5-day, 3-day, and 2-day (Monday to Friday, Monday-Wednesday-Friday, or Tuesday-Thursday) attendance options.

Environment

Our preschool offers a home-like environment that provides beauty, comfort and security, and connection to nature.  Playthings are generally made of non-synthetic materials and allow for open-ended, imaginative play.

Our Philosophy

As a Waldorf-inspired program, we believe that optimal develop occurs when children simultaneously develop their imagination, memory, social skills, artistic sensibilities, and physical health primarily through play.  Scientific research confirms that play in early childhood education activates the entire brain and develops the imagination and decision-making capacities of the child.  Hence, our daily rhythm offers a balance of structured and less structured play-based activities including dramatic play, explorations of nature, music, art, and stories.

Our Principles

  • Human relationships and activity are essential tools for teaching children the foundational skills for life, language, and learning.

  • Children thrive in the presence of devoted teachers who enjoy life and caring for children.

  • Children have freedom of movement in a safe, natural environment.

  • All children are valued for their unique gifts.

  • Children are provided a wide variety of learning opportunities to develop their minds, bodies, and spirits.

Class Size

Bella Lengua Spanish Immersion Preschool accepts students from ages 2 through 6.  Classroom size is 12 or less children at a time with one teacher present or 15 or less with 2 teachers present.

At Bella Lengua, our language immersion curriculum works on four major developmental areas: gross motor development, fine motor development, social/emotional development, and cognitive/linguistic development.
