Preschool Matters Long-term
Did you know that high-quality Pre-K increases graduation rates and impacts future employment options? Our program also leverages the long-term social, cognitive, and economic advantages of bilingualism. A recent alumni study found that our children enter Kindergarten ahead of their Hispanic peers and maintain consistent growth and advantage through second grade!
Each of our classrooms is lead by two bilingual teachers: one native-Spanish speaker and one native-English speaker. Our teachers are guided by Reggio Emilia, a student-centered pedagogy, rooted in respect, responsibility, and community. Our teachers use the Creative Curriculum, which is a comprehensive, research-based, dual language curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning.
MECK Pre-K Program for 4-Year-Olds
For 4-year-olds, we offer extended day classrooms at Charlotte Bilingual Preschool through partnership with MECK Pre-K. These classrooms are also each staffed by two bilingual teachers using the Reggio Emilia approach and the Creative Curriculum.
Our MECK Pre-K classrooms facilitate the flow of social capital and improve language acquisition. In this integrated classroom model, many of our students come from our Spanish-speaking population and others speak English or a third language at home!
