La Academia de Bahia

La Academia de Bahia launched in September 2010.


La Academia de Bahia is our part-time three hour bilingual (Spanish-English) preschool program located at 1718 8th Street.  Academia program operates 175 days a year from September through the middle of June. Childcare slots are open for subsidized and full-fee families. La Academia de Bahia’s curriculum is a Spanish Immersion pre-kindergarten readiness program.  Similar to Centro VIDA, La Academia de Bahia provides a play-based curriculum that is age-appropriate, and meets the developmental needs of children and follows the Learning Foundations. Our classroom and teachers provide opportunities for children to learn through play and exploration in a warm, caring and bilingual learning environment.

Parent conferences are provided bi-annually for parents to check-in with teachers regarding their child's assessments and progress at Academia de Bahia.
