How do children learn Spanish at Cometa?
Children learn a second language the same way they learn their native language, by listening and imitating. Our curriculum is designed to inspire children to learn through play, songs, games and practical life activities including gardening and cooking.
Do children need to know Spanish to attend Cometa?
No prior Spanish knowledge is required. Everybody is welcome! We will learn Spanish together through play, music, artistic expression and more! At the beginning of the school year we help all children get used to our setting by using vocabulary repetition and TPR (Total Physical Response) when introducing a new concept. We use the English language as a tool when it comes to conflict resolution and safety guidelines.
What is the student/teacher ratio?
The ratio is 7:1 for the Fall Preschool. Summer Camps will have no more than 12 children when two educators are present. Our Toddler and Baby Music classes are limited to 10 students.
What kind of curriculum do you use?
We have created an innovative curriculum that encompasses early learning and second language acquisition in a fun, stimulating environment. Our emergent curriculum is child-centered and all activities are age appropriate and based on the children’s needs and interests.
