Preschool 1

Preschool 1 Friends

Sra. Beatriz Scheff and Sra. Madai Williams are the teacher and assistant in Preschool 1, our Spanish immersion room. Children learn to read and write in Spanish alongside English. The transition between languages becomes seamless as the children progress. All our preschool students enjoy time on our playground. This is a uniquely natural space in which students explore the sandboxes, water table, and explore sidewalk chalk, painting, and other outdoor activities. Meet our awesome Preschool 1 teachers!
