Mi Casita uses the Creative Curriculum* as a launching pad for developing a comprehensive Spanish Immersion preschool education. The Creative Curriculum has been nationally recognized as one of the most effective curriculums in the country. Monthly units, or themes, of study will inspire authentic learning in science, literature, art, math/logic, creativity, play, and so much more.
Teachers will create weekly lesson plans that correlate with the monthly unit of study. Weekly lesson plans address critical developmental skills through music and play, inquiry based learning, rich literature, socialization, problem solving, creativity, and authentic learning activities. Parents will be given general theme information and target vocabulary for each theme so that conversations about what is happening at school can be encouraged at home in English or Spanish. As students become more familiar with the program, they will be encouraged to speak in Spanish!

The fastest and most effective way to achieve fluency in a language is through immersion, which provides students with full Spanish language instruction. It is not required for students to speak Spanish or have a Spanish background prior to enrolling.
