Spanish Integration Program
Give your child the gift of a second language. Norbeck Montessori’s bilingual classroom offers a traditional Montessori experience in an environment that integrates both the English and Spanish languages.
In this room, morning activities including lessons, gathering time, snack, and celebrations introduce students to the Spanish language while still promoting the mastery of English. Studies show that the best time to introduce a new language to someone is when they are young. Also, children who see, hear and experience that language absorb and retain it much easier than sitting in a typical classroom environment.
All Norbeck Montessori children not involved in the Spanish Integration program still have the opportunity to experience the Spanish language in their classrooms once a week. See the Enrichment Programs section for more details. If you wish for your child to take part in this program, you must denote this in the appropriate space on your school application. Acceptance into the Integration program will be on a first come, first served basis in conjunction with our requirements (keeping the ages and the genders balanced).
