The Rayito de Sol program is designed to stimulate educational development for children as young as six weeks old up to Kindergarten. Our curriculum will engage your child as they learn and discover through all-day activities such as science, math, art, music and more in a Spanish Immersion format!
Each Rayito de Sol center is a full Spanish immersion preschool. All instructions and activities are conducted entirely in Spanish. This benefits the child as they quickly become comfortable with the immersion method of learning and absorb the Spanish language at a much quicker rate than if learning by hearing two languages concurrently.
“Young children being raised bilingual have to follow social cues to figure out which language to use with which person and in what setting. As a result, says Sorace, bilingual children as young as age 3 have demonstrated a head start on tests of perspective-taking and theory of mind — both of which are fundamental social and emotional skills.
In studies covering six states and 37 districts, they have found that, compared with students in English-only classrooms or in one-way immersion, dual-language students have somewhat higher test scores and also seem to be happier in school. Attendance is better, behavioral problems fewer, parent involvement higher.” Anya Kamenetz of NPR
Our children will add new words to their vocabulary on a daily basis. These are learned through a structured curriculum and activities. We give them the tools to explore their own creativity through activities as they sing songs, role-play, and enjoy games. Visual aids help further the learning process. Our curriculum and evaluation have been carefully developed, and our excellent team of native speaking, qualified teachers are highly trained on an engaging environment.
