Spanish Classes, Camps & Resources for Children, Parents, Teachers & Schools! EST. in 2006
*Preschool Classes *Enrichment at Preschools *Afterschool ENrichment *Saturday Family Class *Private Tutoring *Homeschool Enrichment & More!
We offer year-round classes-including 5 hours Pre-School classes, Spring and Summer camps as well as private classes (Pre-Schools and private homes). Our classes are taught in Spanish, using best practices in second language acquisition and world language instruction. One of our main objectives is for children to make a strong connection between having fun and learning a second or third language. We believe that a child who has fun while learning a world language, will not only do well, but he or she will become a life-long learner. We feel blessed to be a part of that journey!
*Each class, workshop, event has its own timeline. Generally speaking our classes are year round. Summer camps may take the place of classes... Upon registration your credit card will be charged and the fee will be taken each month on the same day. All fees include school holidays and school closures. No refunds or pro-rating for holidays, vacations, or illness. If the teacher misses she will make up the class or you will get a refund for that class within 30 days. Enrichment classes have a break during the week of Thanksgiving, Two weeks off for Winter, One week off for Spring. We require a 30 day notice in writing for cancelled classes. Makeups will only be approved by Irma Vazquez For more information Here
