Preschool Course Age 3-4
PRE-SCHOOLERS AGE 3-4:
Our Vámonos Preschool Course for pre-schoolers aged 3 and 4 is designed to be non-stop fun and activity for one hour, completely in the target language, Spanish. Children are unaccompanied by an adult and attend these classes independently with the teacher, they participate excitedly in games, songs and rhymes. In these classes children also do a table activity based on the vocabulary which they are currently learning, this may be a craft, a painting, colouring or sticking worksheet. The teacher maintains concentration and interest using visual tools, catchy rhymes, puppets and Spanish songs. [Read More…]
The classes are taught in such a way that comprehension is simple, course lists with vocabulary and support information are also given to parents so that reinforcement can be done at home, if you wish. A piece of homework is given after each class so that parents/guardians may continue the learning experience at home.
Our Preschool course teaches Spanish following the EYFS Areas of Learning such as communication and language through interaction and speech, physical development through movement and activity, social development through interaction with classmates and teachers, understanding the world through learning about Spanish culture, expressive arts and design through crafts and table activities which involve the use of various fine motor skills.
This age group is such a pleasure to teach, the children are open and completely able to take in another language without question or inhibition! It’s quite an honour and a privilege to be able to hear these children using the language freely and to see comprehension of the teacher without issue, we find children of this age to be so confident and at ease during our classes that they will reproduce words and phrases in Spanish without hesitation, when they reach the point of offering Spanish spontaneously it’s incredible.
We are extremely proud to be able to offer a foreign language to little ones in the UK, in our European counterparts, foreign languages are taught from an extremely young age and more often than not, they learn several languages simultaneously. Our children deserve that option too, bilingualism is such an incredible skill and the more children we can get interested in foreign languages the better!

During school holidays and festival times we offer a range of extra workshops and parties where parents and their little ones can learn about Spanish traditional festivals and the vocabulary and traditions associated with these. We celebrate Spanish and Latin American festivals such as Carnival, Easter, Halloween / Day of the Dead, Christmas, The Three King’s through workshops and special sessions.
