The Sensitive Period for Language
During this very unique window of development that takes place between 24 and 36 months, language acquisition is organic and joyful. The children are exposed to a rich language environment, during every aspect of the day from the moment they arrive in the morning – language-matching materials, nomenclature, reading, spoken directions, conversation, songs, and descriptive language – all of which support this time of rapid language growth.
Our Spanish Immersion Program is an essential component of our Twos Program. It takes advantage of the child’s unconscious yet extremely productive period for learning languages. All guides in the classroom speak to the children only in Spanish. Children learn to understand and respond seamlessly to both languages.
