Language Immersion

We don’t teach Mandarin and Spanish; we teach in Mandarin and Spanish

At Avenues, learning a second language is more than an academic pursuit; it is a daily practice that transforms the way students see and think about the world. From nursery to 5th grade, students spend 50% of their time learning in English and 50% learning in a second language: one day in English, one day in Mandarin or Spanish.

Learning Through Play

The key to child development

Tactile play develops fine and gross motor skills, physical play stimulates growth, and make-believe play accelerates social-emotional learning. Most importantly for us, all kinds of play foster a love of learning that young children will carry with them as they move upwards through school.

Healthy Habits

Fostering self-help skills, self-regulation and independence

Avenues’ early childhood program begins with the facilitation of healthy separation from caregivers and progresses through the development of all-important self-help skills. With constant, individualized support from their teachers, our youngest students learn how to take care of themselves and each other—whether pouring water from a pitcher, hanging up their coat or cleaning up after playtime—and in so doing, build competency and self-confidence.

State-of-the-Art Facilities

A dedicated space for young learners

Our beautiful early childhood facility was designed in consultation with Avenues faculty to provide safe and stimulating spaces for different kinds of learning and play. These include a fully landscaped outdoor playground, a multipurpose room for movement, a patio for growing plants and a teaching kitchen. Located on the same block as our original campus, the purpose-built facility provides a cozy environment in which young children can play, learn and thrive.
