Activities are designed to adequately nurture the emotional and intellectual growth of our students. Through stimulating situations and hands-on learning opportunities, young children are free to develop into bright young minds.

We believe that children thrive in an environment which values their own uniqueness, while providing support and opportunities to grow emotionally, socially and creatively.

“Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write,and count. It is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace that is right for each individual child”

Learning Through Play

The educational programs at Academia Elze were created with our student’s needs in mind: to mature and develop in a safe yet stimulating full Spanish immersion environment. Take a look below to learn more about each program.


Care and Learning

Our small classes have worked well for our families. It provides a caring environment that develops a bond and trust between teachers and your baby. Infants receive individualized care and attention.  The stimulating classroom helps to create the foundation for future learning.


Perfect Fit For Your Child

No matter what your child needs, our program will provide the support and tools necessary for optimal growth. Our curriculum balances teacher-planned and child-initiated learning while emphasizing responsiveness to the children's strengths, interests and learning style. We embrace our multi-lingual community by supporting the academic acquisition of Spanish skills in the classroom.


What Your Child  Needs

Our Spanish immersion environment is designed as a learning community where your child not only acquires the skills to succeed in the future with confidence, but also develops respect for the environment, their peers, and the rest of the community.  We always embrace their previous knowledge to connect their new target language. 

Get in touch today to reserve a spot for your child. Feel free to give us a call or email with any questions!


Ready for Kindergarten

We see school as a challenging and fun part of life. The teachers are the facilitators who speak in Spanish throughout the day. We use a S.T.E.A.M. curriculum intended to engage children in experiences that foster the development of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity,  self-regulation, and a high self-esteem.  The size of our classrooms will always provide

an individualized learning

environment. Pre-literacy skills and pre-

math skills are present during different daily experiences and we make sure they are ready for any kindergarten curriculum.



Highly Qualified Staff

Passionate, dedicated, and loving, the Academia Elze team loves their work and it shows in everything they do. Our goal is to make a positive change to young students who attend our Spanish Immersion Child Care Center.

I am dedicated to making sure all families feel welcomed  and included at Academia Elze. I really enjoy communicating with families and I have developed excellent communication and listening skills through 8 years of experience working with different people and cultures. The focus of my Liberal Arts was Education. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles of the students when they learn something new and they share this with their families and teachers!
