Kindergarten FAQs

Kindergarten Frequently Asked Questions

How does your Kindergarten program work?

We offer a bilingual five-day Kindergarten program, which consists of three days in Spanish (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and two days in English (Tuesday, Thursday). We also offer a three-day, Spanish only, program. Both programs are 9 a.m. - 2 p.m., with optional extended care.

Our number one goal for our Kindergarten students is to have them fully prepared for first grade. Our highly experienced, Spanish and English teachers share teaching responsibilities by presenting a continuous curriculum in alternating languages. This means that concepts taught in Spanish one day are not repeated in English the next day, but instead are built upon and taken to the next level. All subjects (reading, writing, math, and science/social studies) are covered daily.

Whether it is an English day or a Spanish day, all students will experience a true Latin educational environment; an environment that academically enriches the student, emphasizes manners and nurtures the child.

What is the ratio for the Kindergarten class?

Spanish Schoolhouse ratios are lower than the state standards, as well as many other area private Kindergartens. Our ratio for Kindergarten is 12:1.

If my child does not have any previous Spanish, will he be able to keep up?

Yes! We welcome new students to our Kindergarten program. Our experience has shown that new students learn from and rise to the level of their classmates. The focus will be on the academic material being taught, as they gradually acquire confidence in Spanish. For the quickest and smoothest transition, we strongly recommend that students who are new to Spanish Schoolhouse enroll in the five-day program.

What curriculum do you teach?

Our program is based on the Texas Education Agency's Kindergarten TEKS, http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index2.aspx?id=6148. The SSH Kindergarten curriculum has been developed by a team of Texas-certified teachers to meet all of the state requirements, but is taught at a higher level, challenging students to reach their highest potential. Creative lessons and small class sizes allow a personalized learning experience and increased opportunities for student participation. In addition, students are enriched by learning about the Latin culture and traditions, and they gain self-confidence as they speak, read, and write in Spanish and English.

My child turns five in September. Can he/she be in your kindergarten?

Texas public schools (and many private schools) allow enrollment into each grade level based on the student's age on September 1. At Spanish Schoolhouse we encourage parents to enroll their children using the same guideline, but in some cases our schools can extend the cut-off to September 30. Please contact the Director for more information.
