We are pleased to announce The Cottage School 2017 Summer Program schedule. Throughout the month of June, we will be offering three separate language and art immersion sessions for children ages 2yrs -14yrs.

Week I (Tuesday, June 6 to Friday, June 9) : Costa Rica (Spanish/Art Immersion)

Week II (Tuesday, June 13 to Friday, June 16) : Argentina (Spanish/Art Immersion)

Week III (Tuesday, June 20 to Friday, June 23) : Peru (Spanish/Art Immersion)


Starting at 9:30am and ending at 12:30 pm, each day will be divided into two parts : 1 hr. 30 min for Spanish language immersion, where children learn about the country of study: its geography, people, traditions, food, music, and dances, and 1 hr. 30 min. for art, inspired by that particular country.

The children will be immersed in Spanish by singing folk songs, play-acting, art activities, traditional games, writing and drawing in books and reading aloud original prose, poetry and folktales. The teacher speaks only in the foreign language in much the same way a mother would at home. This natural approach to learning also helps students master other foreign languages later in life.

In addition to our Spanish and Art Immersion Program, we will be offering an optional Children’s Zumba class daily from 8:45am - 9:30am and an optional Spanish Language Enrichment Class from 12:30pm-2:00pm.
