“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.” – Frank Smith
18 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS
Crossing Borders International Preschool is not your typical child care center. Our immersion preschool in Houston offers enriching academic programs in two different languages; Spanish and English. You can choose one language or both. Our teachers nurture and guide your child, so they can learn a second language and become independent.
For our toddlers, the morning routine is an important part of the day. During this time, teachers speak completely in the targeted language, going over colors, numbers, the alphabet, the weather, the days of the week, and the months of the year. Children are introduced to their new language and culture through play, individual and group interactions, and age-appropriate activities that capture and hold their attention. Adhering to the TPR approach, using language and physical cues, we teach our students about topics that deal with daily life, such as how to be a friend and get along well with others.
Our Beautiful Houston location offers:
– English Immersion (18 months +)
– Spanish Immersion (18 months +)
– French Immersion (must be 3 years old and potty trained)
– Mandarin Immersion (must be 3 years old and potty trained)
-Starting August 21, 2019 Arabic Immersion (must be 3 years old and fully potty trained)
We are currently offering 2 (T/TH), 3 (MWF), and 5-day options. If you want your child to be in two languages you must sign up for 5 days.
