This program is divided in three periods for the acquisition of English as a second language.

Prekinder, the silent and pre-production period

During this period, language comprehension is established; children are exposed to English and begin to recognize communicative intentions, and associate vocabulary and expressions with their immediate environment. Time is also given for children to demonstrate their understanding through non-verbal language and to feel comfortable before producing their first words in the second language.

Kinder, the early production period

Children begin spontaneous oral production in English and start using isolated words that are later transformed into simple sentences that allow them to make basic descriptions and narrations. This becomes the main input of the reading and writing process.

Transition, the period of the emergence of speech

At this stage, children increase their vocabulary repertoire and their fluency. Oral production is strengthened through more complex and creative sentences. The oral development obtained in the second language allows children to start reading and writing significant experiences.

Social & Affective Development

Through continuous monitoring of the development and learning processes, strategies are built to strengthen the social and affective dimension and establish children’s bonds of endearment and closeness with their peers and teachers.
