ISB’s French and Spanish Language Immersion Summer Program captures the best of language-learning and summer fun! ISB Summer’s staff is comprised of experienced, talented, and creative educators. Small group sizes of 12 to 15 children and 2 to 3 counselors helps each group build strong bonds and allows for personalized learning and attention. ISB’s warm and welcoming atmosphere makes ISB Summer Program a great experience for children of all language levels. Beginners grasp the rhythm of the language, learn songs, and build daily vocabulary. More advanced speakers enhance their skills by learning new vocabulary and using the language with their peers.

ISB's Summer Program is open to rising Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade students, and it will run for a total of 5 weeks beginning June 26th and ending July 28th.

 

ISB's Summer Language Immersion Program is open to children entering Pre-K through 1st Grade. Choose to register for any combination of weekly sessions. Read about the weekly themes for this summer below! 

Week 1, 6/26-6/30: School's Out! Kick up your feet, grab your shades, and come soak up the sun with us at ISB as we celebrate the beginning of summer. We will go on summer picnics, enjoy water games, take part in sunny science experiments, and whip up a batch of ice cream to help us start off summer the right way!

Week 2, 7/3-7/7: Let's All Move Ready, set, go! Get ready to move those tiny feet and stay active. Tie up your shoelaces, grab a ball, and let’s get moving and grooving at ISB. From dance parties to jungle gym time, kids will spend their days actively exploring the target language.

Week 3 7/10-7/14: Colorful Creations Dive into a colorful world of your own making. From painting to cooking activities, each time we will be exploring and appreciating the bold colors and creations of your own imagination. Be an artist, be a cook--see colorful creations everywhere you look!

Week 4, 7/17-7/21: Sticky, Wet, and Dry
This week we will use our senses to discover all things sticky, wet, and dry. Measure out, mix ingredients, and transform dry to wet to sticky. We’ll be playing and exploring with dirt and sand--pouring, sifting, doing it all! There’s nothing better than using your hands to experiment with your surroundings.

Week 5, 7/24-7/28: Into the Wild Leave the city behind for a week and take a trip into the wild side of ISB! Kids will embody nature and its beauty through the target language. We’ll wrap up our summer with outdoor scavenger hunts and nature-inspired keepsakes.
