Our school is open year-round and specifically caters to families who value education and an internationally-focused curriculum for their children within the DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas, as we offer a choice of either Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, or Arabic language curriculum tracks for their children.
Our team of educators is unique and teaches a daily Science-based and hands-on Arts curriculum containing a myriad of age-appropriate topics over a span of several weeks to support understanding. All of our classes are taught in 100% of the target languages. Children enrolled in our preschool truly get the benefit of becoming world citizens by gaining familiarity with the diversity of several world languages and cultures every day, even if they are enrolled in one specific language track!
