Are you a mom entrepreneur thinking about starting a Spanish Immersion program for young children?
Or are you struggling to get your language program to grow?
I’ve helped many moms like you start their own successful Spanish immersion programs:
From Marcela Caro, Mpressaria and director of La Casa Grande Spanish Programs for Children:
“In March 2011, I came up with the idea of forming a group for parents who wanted to raise their sons and daughters bilingual. Through this program, I scheduled activities for moms and children where they could learn and play together in Spanish. After a few months, parents and preschool administrators became interested in my program and I subsequently created a mobile program which I deliver to preschools and daycares in Central New Jersey.
As a new teacher, I came across many challenges and Ana’s e-guide taught me to use new strategies to keep parents and their children engaged with the lessons. One of my favorite tools I gleaned from Ana is Storytelling. I love to read stories to children. Our favorite is “Caperucita Roja y el Lobo Malo” (Little Red Riding Hood and the Bad Wolf) from Ana Lomba. The book is easy to read, simple and entertaining. The book also includes a CD which I play during our puppet and pretend play time.
Ana’s e-guide also talks about the importance of preparing parents prior to sessions. I remember parents bringing laptops and texting while the class was in progress. Ana recommended sharing a hand out with do’s and don’ts to make the class more efficient and successful. Once I started giving written expectations, parents were more focused, engaged, and respectful.
Ana has been an invaluable resource and my group continues to grow as a result.”
