Hixson United Methodist Child Development Center will be offering Spanish Immersion Preschool, child care for 3-5 year olds, beginning on September 3rd. The program will run Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. (The option of extended hours in a full time CDC classroom is available.) Except for the start date, this preschool will follow the Hamilton County school schedule.
Immersion institutes are unique in that they are specifically designed for educators to teach subject matter through Spanish 100% of the school day. Scientific research shows that the early acquisition of a second language helps:
? Build more powerful brains with better and faster synaptic connections
? Enhance cognitive development, including the ability to focus in the face of distraction
? Increase ability to problem solve
? Increase student’s sensitivity to language, its structure and sounds
? Improve a child’s understanding of his native language
? Students learn to read faster than monolingual children
? Improve math and music skills
? Increase job opportunities
? Increase global awareness
? Develops appreciation of other cultures
Space is limited in the Spanish Immersion Preschool. For more information and pricing, please contact Lana Green, director of HUMCDC at 877-0554 or email Lana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
