Our very rambunctious, 2.5 year old daughter has been attending this preschool for nearly 6 months now.
As with any 2 year old put into a new environment, she cried and cried the first week, maybe. The teachers were so loving and hugged her and held her and made her feel comforted just as I would have. She loves it so much now she asks even on the weekends if she is going to ""clase"" today. I speak to her ONLY in Spanish, and so this program is absolutely the best fit I can possibly conceive of for our daughter. The spanish she learns there really reinforces what I teach her, and the warmth of the teachers and of the environment is something that I did not expect, but could only have hoped to find in a pre-school. The art projects they do, the songs they teach them, the dances they do to begin and end the day...all AMAZING. Their Xmas pageant this year was so so great- all 3 classes (the 2s, 3s, and 4s) all put on a performance in spanish for all the parents- it was so great to see how hard the teachers had worked to teach them these great spanish songs & dances. I honestly cannot recommend this school highly enough. LOVE it. My Son will certainly go there when he is of pre-school age!
My husband and I read about this school in the local paper and decided it'd be a good fit for our second child (4 yrs old) He was going to a preschool in Berkeley for 2 years and he's always been quiet over there. He never talked about school or what he did that day. He has only been at KISS for 2 weeks and he can't stop talking about what he's learned everyday. My husband and his parents are ecstatic, since they are Latino themselves. The staff is kind and loving. My son seems to love all of them. My older daughter is more motivated now to keep up her knowledge of Spanish (learned from Dad, of course.) My 2 year old will start there as soon as he turns 3. We are very happy we made the decision to move my son here. And it's only a mile and half away...Icing on the cake!!
I can not speak more highly about this preschool. I was wary about the total immersion program and how it would affect my first childs performance in Kindergarten. Well he now knows more then children in two languages.
The staff is incredible, the atmosphere is wonderful and the children attending are sharp as tacks. My daughter is starting in the fall in the 2's and I can't wait. My kindergartener will return to take the new afterschool program.
I guess the good word has spread, because they are opening a school in Montclair
I love this school. I am the mother of four and my two older children went to another well known local preschool, but I switched to this school so my two younger children could have the advantage of being exposed to another language early. At first I was worried because it was a fairly new school of five years, but I soon realized I had nothing to worry about. This is probably the best experience I have ever had for my children. The teachers are so attentive, it feels like a big warm family. My two youngest have learnt some Spanish already and understand even more. They seem to be learning their numbers faster than my other two older children did, but most importantly they love this school. It makes me feel good to take them to a place they really like and I feel that I am giving them the best advantages possible. Great experience.
This is such a great idea. The children are in a warm loving environment, learning all the traditional skills for their age but also learn the Spanish Language. My 4 year old son can count to 20 in Spanish after only a couple of months. The school just moved to a great new location that has easy freeway access with none of the congestion of central Lafayette. I can't say enough great things about this school, my younger daughter will definitely be going when she turns two.
I can't praise this Preschool enough. It is a total Spanish immersion Preschool that not only prepares the kids for Elementary school, but also teaches a language. THey have fiestas celebrating different latin cultures with authentic dancers and muscians. The teaches are very kind and loving. My children love it and don't want to leave when I pick them up. It's fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!
