“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 Preschool is not your typical child care center. We educate, care for, and nurture your child, all while teaching them a new language. Give your child an advantage with the opportunity to speak and understand more than one language!

For our youngest preschool students, 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)

We are currently offering 2, 3, and 5 day options.
