Spanish Language Program

Set your little explorer off on the right path with our Spanish Language Program. These classes are designed to teach kids Spanish as well as introduce them to cultural elements from Spanish-speaking countries. Learning another language is not only a practical life skill, but it also encourages openness to new experiences and fosters an appreciation and acceptance of other cultures.

Our Spanish Language Program utilizes TPR (Total Physical Response) and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) methodologies to help students make easy connections to new words, phrases, and sentences in a second language by using movement, music, stories, and more.

The program is open to children ages 4-10 and consists of beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Advancement/enrollment level is based on aptitude and language development and is at the discretion of the teacher. There is no designated age range for each specific level. Sessions run in 8-week blocks and can be booked consecutively once the new session opens for enrollment.

Not sure which level is right for your child? Reach out to [email protected] to arrange a quick email assessment with Ms. Claudia.

Next session coming February 2024.

MEET MS. CLAUDIA

My name is Claudia Neville and I am originally from Colombia. Teaching has been an important part of my life and I’ve been doing it for over ten years in the USA—most recently as a teacher here at the Ridgewood Y Preschool. I love being able to teach our young explorers new and exciting things in my native language, Spanish!
