Alma Flor Ada is a comprehensive, full-day Spanish Immersion Academy. We provide Toddler, Early Pre-K, Pre-K, and Kindergarten immersive programming for children ages 24 months – Kindergarten.
Our year-round academic program is divided into two parts:
- 40 weeks of a 90/10 Spanish immersion academic framework where our beloved author, Dr. Alma Flor Ada’s curriculum comes alive within our daily lessons and our interactive activities; integrating the cultural aspects of Latino culture. (We follow the same school calendar as Woodbury Public School District, 833)
- 12 weeks of fun–filled activities provided in a thematic, summer camp structure. Our summer programming will integrate STEM activities with Spanish immersion language development. Students will be provided a high–quality learning experience where students can discover their passion, innovation, and brilliance, as well as begin to identify and solve real–world problems through both empathy and inquiry.
Each day is divided in the following way:
- Before School Care starting at 6:30 a.m.
- Spanish Immersion Program from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
- After School Enrichment Program from 3:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
