What Joyce Offers

Joyce Preschool offers dual immersion (Spanish-English) preschool classes for children ages 3 to 5, and provides scholarships based on need. We work toward preparing children for kindergarten and beyond. In each of our classes, children are given the opportunity each day to be an expert in their own language and learn from peer role models.

Our Park Avenue site has age-based classes. Younger children ages 3-4 are in one classroom, and older children ages 4-5 are in another.

Our Hiawatha site has mixed-age classrooms, with children ages 3-5 all learning together.

Student & Family Literacy

Joyce Preschool focuses on the development of our students’ literacy skills as a major part of our school readiness efforts.

Two-Way Immersion

Our two-way immersion program is structured around equal numbers of English- and Spanish-speaking children. Children have an immense capacity for second language acquisition and comprehension at a young age.

For Spanish-speaking students, Joyce understands the great benefits to supporting native language retention, as well as English acquisition to ensure school readiness.

For English-speaking students, there is a great academic and experiential benefit to introducing a second language.

Over half our teaching staff are native Spanish speakers. Equal numbers of Spanish and English-speaking teachers and students means that children are able to learn language from their teachers and from one another. Diverse cultural traditions are celebrated throughout the school year and parent participation in school events is encouraged. Joyce’s unique program allows families to build friendships across linguistic and cultural barriers.
