Pine Village is a highly respected Spanish Immersion School for Toddlers and Preschoolers with a growing number of small neighborhood schools located within Greater Boston. The schools launch children on a path to global citizenship and cater to those enlightened, globally aware families who are seeking to both jumpstart their child’s world language proficiency at the child development stage where it’s easiest to absorb two languages; and strengthen their child’s multi-cultural awareness.
Each school is designed to educate and inspire approximately forty children in a secure, intimate, colorful and pristine setting. Our school’s unique, culturally rich educational environment facilitates lively peer-to peer-interactions and encourages a natural curiosity about their environment and the greater world around them. Our low teacher-to-student ratio encourages personalized attention, active learning and tailored individual development.
All schools offer a simple on-going application process to register a child for either a five-day full day program or part-time program options tailored to meet the needs of individual families.
The school’s rigorous teacher recruitment process affords each school director the ability to hand pick those candidates who best demonstrate a deeply embedded caring, nurturing nature, as well as the facilitative teaching mastery that promotes a child’s development of both English and Spanish language skills and the traditional Kindergarten readiness academic and social concepts. Our highly skilled Spanish-speaking educators represent the diversity of Latin cultures from around the globe.
The Pine Village philosophy encourages a child’s natural active learning orientation through both guided and unstructured play and exploration. Throughout each day, educators allow students to choose their own play, set up their own problems, and control their own learning. This is an exciting and powerful experience for children, who often are subject to the direction of others. Through this type of learning, Pine Village students gain both valuable collaborative problem-solving and communication skills, plus a sense of self-confidence and self-reliance not often demonstrated by children at this stage of development.
In fact, graduates of Pine Village demonstrate five critical Kindergarten success factors:
- A magnified love of learning
- High self-esteem and self-confidence
- Proficiency in both Spanish and English
- The academic and social readiness to enter the public or private school of their choice
- The ability to easily adapt to diverse cultural expectations
