"I credit a lot of their fast pace of learning to attending class twice a week...There is really a huge difference that can be seen in a short amount of time."

A Typical 100% Immersion Day
Instructors provide a structured day that has a variety of learning opportunities all in the target language. Children engage in individual and social activities, assist with cleanup and develop self‐care skills. The most important segment of the daily routine is HighScope’s plan‐do‐review sequence, in which children make choices about what they will do, carry out their ideas, and reflect upon their activities with their instructors and other children.
We believe that children are intelligent. At a young age, they know what they like and learn better if the content being taught relates to their interests. This allows a preschooler’s natural love of learning to take over, encourages feelings of competency and increases the probability of classroom success.
We believe that instructors make the difference. Our amazing preschool instructors are more than an intelligent, interesting and globally aware group of native speakers. They are hard workers on a mission to create a climate of trust and respect from the child’s point of view in a “nose to nose, knee to knee” kind of way.
We believe there is a right way to aid language acquisition. When children have to understand to “survive” (participate) in an immersion environment, they acquire chunks of useful language. This becomes even easier when preschool curriculum is presented in a fun, play‐based fashion just like in an English‐only setting.
We believe in a no pressure environment. In an effort to inspire success, we create a feeling of “home” in our facilities. When children feel safe and nurtured in their environment, they have fun, express themselves openly, and most importantly, learn.
