Welcome to your Spanishtime® AIP learning experience!

 

            Spanishtime® is a Scottsdale based education company. We’ve been providing interactive Spanish language classes for all ages throughout the valley for almost 20 years and we are very excited to be teaching your student!

 

            The Spanishtime® aftercareprogram is a hands-on, activity based learning opportunity focused on providing a safe and fun environment for your child after school while enhancing your child's Spanish conversation.  The primary goal of our aftercare program is to offer a safe and educational environment that is fun-filled for your student!

 

                       

            Our program is designed to work with varying ages and levels of Spanish. While we understand that all students learn at different levels based on their age and in our case their Spanish background/experience, our aftercare activities are modified to be age and level appropriate. The important part is to use the language and practice! The children can even make up their own games and activities too. Above all. . .WE AIM TO HAVE FUN!!

                       

             Here at Spanishtime®, we always strive to give you top quality! Therefore, we are continually upgrading our program to include the most up-to-date information and teaching methods. Contact us anytime. We want to know what works for you!

Description of Program

           Spanishtime’s Aftercare Immersion Program (AIP) is a Spanish Immersion Program for Kindergarten through 8th grade attending school at Biltmore Preparatory Academy. Your student will participate in a fun and safe environment on school days from school release time until 6pm. We will provide hands-on activities such as music, arts and crafts, outdoor play, safe indoor movement & sports activities, board games, puzzles,  and *assisted homework time. We will also have a snack time (you provide snack) and on all early release days, we will have a more structured Spanish class from 1:10-3pm.

The main academic goal of Spanishtime’s AIP Program is to expose your student to more conversational Spanish, both listening and speaking in a fun, interactive environment that allows them to practice and learn without the stress of a structured class.

*Assisted homework time is for all students. Individual private tutoring is available for an additional cost, if excessive time or an advanced level is needed. Contact the Spanishtime® Office directly; based on availability)
