Spanish Preschool and Kindergarten Program
The Spanish Immersion Preschool at Lowcountry Language Academy is inspired by Reggio Emilia's approach to education. Our teachers incorporate science, technology, engineering, art and math (S.T.E.A.M) in their classes. We emphasize learning through exploration, and language immersion in a creative environment. All hands-on activities are designed to cultivate a higher level of thinking, while increasing confidence and creativity. Registration 2018-2019
Our project-based program fosters your child's growth throughout all developmental domains—physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and artistic. The Spanish Immersion Preschool encourages students to explore various centers promoting arts, literacy, maths-sciences, and motor skills while learning Spanish in a meaningful way. At the end of the year you will receive a beautiful book with all the artwork your child has completed.
Our daily schedule ensures a balance between teacher-guided activities and individual exploration. Our passionate teachers incorporate the Spanish language and culture with your children's interests through fun and engaging hands-on activities.
We offer opportunities for children of all ages to learn according to their unique learning styles and level of understanding. We welcome children from 3 to 5 years old to learn together, creating interrelation between older and younger children. This type of atmosphere allows for both younger and older children to not only work together, but learn from one another. We offer after-school enrichment classes after regular school hours. Lowcountry Language Academy will largely follow the calendar of the Charleston County School District.
