We desire to ignite a love of learning Spanish in young children and to do so in fun, innovative ways!
We make learning Spanish fun for kids! We create our beginner Spanish curriculum specifically for young children.
The Language Spark curriculum incorporates games, hands on, puppets, videos and songs to make Spanish come alive for young students.
In addition, we incorporate multiple subject areas (like Math, Science and Social Studies) into our lessons so that children are learning age-appropriate content while they learn Spanish.
Our Spanish teachers are fully bilingual
All teachers are trained in Second Language Acquisition techniques to facilitate our Spanish immersion approach so that children are enveloped in the language.
Our teachers undergo weekly training and are required to have the same background checks and CPR Certification as all Texas child care workers.
The Language Spark was founded by Ginny Kuhnel in 2010. From the first day she started learning Spanish as a kid, Ginny has always had a passion for the language. Ginny studied Spanish in college and lived in Guadalajara, Mexico for part of her college years. Ginny has a Master in Bilingual Education and devoted much of her career to the Bilingual Education realm of the public-school system.
However, Ginny felt that there was a need for ALL children to have access to learning a second language, and she also had a passion to teach young children. After a fruitless search for a Spanish curriculum that would be appropriate for young children, Ginny decided to create her own. Since then, The Language Spark team has been devoted to continually improving, refining and delivering our curriculum to ignite a love of learning Spanish in young children.
