Children and Family Program
Instituto Chac-Mool provides a Spanish plan that is ideal for children’s and can be taken at any moment of the year, need to have at least one parent (or perhaps a specified guardian) studying at the school with him or her. The course hours are weekdays 8:50 am to 1:50 pm (just like our other adult programs).
In summer, our Children’s plan becomes a binational and bicultural program we call it The Amiguitos Program. This Program provides a distinctive chance for your children to communicate with local Mexican children who join the program to understand English while your son or daughter is learning Spanish. After day-to-day lessons the children get together for educational and enjoyable activities and to form friendships.
Youngsters learn Spanish through educational, yet entertaining activities. Since many children already have been exposed to Spanish, such as contribution in Dual Concentration programs which have become widely implemented in some portions of the USA, our program here at Instituto Chac-Mool has evolved to meet all those needs. We have accommodated a thematic strategy that provides small group teaching (6-8 children) to all levels. This program makessure that each child is challenged at their own Spanish level, as well as enjoys fascinating, diverse topics, for example ocean life, etc. As element of the learning procedure, the young students may write a story, act in a play, create a colorfull pinata, or they can draw and paint in art class.
For students who are under 4 years old , a superb day care center accepting kids infant to 4 years old is just a quick walk from Instituto Chac-Mool. Make sure you bring your child’s vaccination records and a passport size photo.
Kids may join the weekend ethnic excursion with parental supervision. Plus Instituto Chac-Mool has safe homestay families that welcome families such as yours into their homes.
