MANCHESTER — Northshire Day School is offering a 12-week Spanish language course to early childhood educators at the Arlington Common. This course is free and made possible by the Sunrise Direct Service Community Grant and the NDS Irene Hunter Professional Development Fund.
Local educators Andrea Thulin and Maggie Rubick will team up to teach a Spanish conversation class through the lens of working with young children and their families.
“Our goal is to ensure that educators are prepared to work with dual-language learners and are ready to welcome all children and families to their classrooms,” said NDS Family Tree Coordinator Jen Rodriguez, who is organizing the program.
Early childhood educators serving children in infant classrooms through grade two are invited to participate. Those who complete the course will receive professional development credits and a certificate, in addition to dual-language materials and books to empower them to apply their learning in the classroom.
Spanish in the Early Childhood Classroom will take place on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. from Mar. 29 through Jun. 14, 2023. For more information or to register, contact Laurie Metcalfe at Imetcalfe@northshiredayschool.org.
