Spanish for Children
Experience Spanish language, culture, music, art and food. Children can learn Latin American music, instruments and dances.
We offer Spanish Classes for Children from Kindergarten to Grade 9
Students receive comprehensive language and cultural training. Small class sizes provide children the opportunity for more individualized attention, opportunities to practice concepts learned and participate actively in their learning. Students’ needs and interests are considered and integrated to the curriculum.
Classes are held on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm — 87 hours of instruction per year beginning in September until June, except long weekends and PD days. (See our School Calendar for details).
Students can experience Spanish culture through our Talleres, or workshops. Children can learn Latin American music, instruments and dances. We have an excellent group of experienced Latin American musicians and dancers for our Talleres.
As part of our curriculum, all students (adults and children) are exposed to diverse Latin American cultures through exhibits, having the opportunity to try ethnic food from different Latin American countries, music classes, and many other social events.
