Our Classes

The Trolley Preschool offers an immersion based Bilingual Program serving the needs of children 2-5, and their families. With a focus on a dual language program, individual cognitive, social and physical development, the bilingual teachers and staff work towards the same mission: Through an emergent bilingual curriculum and culturally rich environment we nurture children, preparing them to be successful in life, confident learners and true friends. Through constant exposure to the Spanish language, cultural activities, games, songs and books, children are developing oral language skills in both English and Spanish.
