We are excited to share with you that we hired a Spanish speaking Children’s House (Primary for children ages 3 – 6 years) Lead Guide (Teacher) last week! We are beginning the process of creating Spanish Immersion Children’s House Program for the Fall of 2014. The class that was Ms. Saundra’s classroom and is now Ms. Loren’s class will become a dual-language program this year, with lessons, songs and stories in both English and Spanish. Next year the class will move into a full immersion program.
This marks the beginning of our progress toward offering Spanish Immersion or Spanish Dual-Language programs at every level here at Greenspring Montessori! (Our goal is to have one classroom at each level that is either dual-language or immersion.) After an intense search last year, we had worried we would have to delay the beginning of this process – but we were very, very lucky when the perfect staff to get things off the ground found us, and couldn’t wait to provide this opportunity to our students.
If you are a current or a prospective parent of a Greenspring Montessori Children’s House student, and would like more details on this program, please contact Margaret Jarrell, our Director of Admissions, by emailing through this link or calling 410-321-8555, ext. 102.
For more information on both the dual-language and immersion programs, please see the Spanish Immersion & Dual-Language Program page on our website.
