Making a Difference When it Matters
Welcome! We are excited to open our doors to you and your child! The optimal stage for learning and second language acquisition for children are preschool years. We believe all children should have the opportunity to learn and acquire a second language while learning in their first language. We will provide your child an exceptional early childhood education and exposure to bilingualism.
Bilingual education provides a distinctive and powerful opportunity to strengthen children’s highest cognitive brain development through literacy development in two languages and authentic exposure to language experiences. Dual Language promotes bilingualism and biliteracy, grade-level academic achievement and cross-cultural competence in all students. Research shows that bilingual individuals have an easier time with these brain functions: developing strong thinking skills, using logic, focusing, remembering and making decisions, understanding math concepts and problems, increasing reading comprehension, and cultivating greater cultural awareness.
Yorktown Spanish School is an early childhood, dual-language preschool for children ages 2 to 5. Our enriched curriculum follows state guidelines and standards to ensure all students are ready and successful throughout their school years.
Our mission is to provide your child a high quality early childhood education by incorporating a dual-language model for students to acquire a second language.
