The International School of Charlottesville offers the best in preschool education within a foreign language environment. The language center in the brain undergoes the greatest development in the first years of life. Exposing a child to a second language at an early age broadens cognitive ability in later years. Learning and thinking in another language also encourages multicultural awareness.
At The International School of Charlottesville, the new language is not introduced as a separate subject but is an intrinsic part of the environment. In an immersion program the teachers communicate with the children predominantly in the target language. As the children work and play in this new environment, the target language gradually becomes their preferred means of communication at school.
