Spanish

We strongly believe that exposure to a secondary language is vitally important to young children for cognitive and social reasons. The pathways for language are built in early childhood and we want to strengthen those through languages and music. 

At Keystone, we expose the children from Preschool forward to Espanol through music, games, and cultural stories to enhance curiosity, fluency of thought, and respect and understanding of diversity. We do not expect our children to be fluent in conversational Espanol when they leave us. Instead, we strive for an invigorated interest and love for all languages and cultures that we hope will inspire them to future enjoyment and study.

Each classroom teacher is responsible for age-appropriate exposure to Spanish. However, in the older grades, students work in a whole-group setting using Rosetta Stone to understand the spoken word and its translation.
