“Small Giants of the Future” 

Spanish Immersion Preschool

Ages: 2 years, 6 months – 4years, 11 months

Instructor : Human Advance  LLC

Mondays- Fridays (see options below)


Mi Chu Chu Tren Spanish immersion for preschoolers is a program carefully designed to enable children to understand the world around them and the talents within them, while instilling passion for the Spanish language. We create an environment where they can learn daily activities and life skills while learning a second language, 100% exposed to Spanish. We know kids are natural born learners, we give them the tools and space for them to explore and fulfill their curiosity through hands-on-projects. Our curriculum develops the fundamental cognitive skills they will need for Kindergarten but we focus our hearts to teach them non-cognitive skills like perseverance, character, self-creativeness, trust and respect, which we believe are the key for their personal success.
