Our preschool and kinder program is for children from three to five years old.
Unlike other schools where language is relegated to a class session per day or private instruction, ISSA provides a full immersion Spanish school experience. Students meet, greet, eat, and participate in all activities in Spanish, receiving nonstop input appropriate to their age and level of understanding.
Our teachers communicate understandably, using gestures, visuals, repetition, and speaking slowly. These techniques are applied to all lessons, such as a math lesson or a story, enabling students to acquire Spanish as they learn other content. ISSA students become proficient in Spanish at an age-appropriate level.
Our holistic program exposes children to a broad range of subjects:
- Physical, social and personal education
- Exploring the world
English language arts, including phonics, are introduced in preschool, and a third language is offered weekly in our core curriculum.
Our Spanish Preschool Curriculum exceeds Texas state standards and is enhanced with global best practices, such as Singapore Math. The Spanish program includes stories and songs from the Spanish-speaking world as part of its language arts instruction. We also teach developmentally appropriate history and geography in the Spanish–speaking world.
In addition to full immersion preschool education, we foster an environment that promotes diversity, inclusion, respect for others, collaboration and teamwork, and kindness.
