The Greenwich Spanish School offers the traditional pre-K academic curriculum of pre-reading, pre-writing and pre-math programs to children 3-5 years of age taught solely in Spanish. English language skills will also be emphasized so children will start learning to read and write in their native language.
The goal of The Greenwich Spanish School is to start children on the path to being bilingual at the optimal age. In addition to the advantage of fluency in another language, studies show that bilingual children have greater cognitive and integrative skills and often increased scientific and mathematical abilities.
GSS currently focuses on preschool children 3 to 5 years of age but intends to expand its educational programs in successive years to higher levels. Tuesday-Thursday & Saturday Programs are also offered for children in Kindergarten through grade 3. Summer programs are intended for children at all levels (no prior knowledge of Spanish is necessary).
The Greenwich Spanish School follows Connecticut's Early Learning and Development Standards - What children, birth to five, should know and be able to do (CTELDS).
