Preschool matters long-term

Did you know that high-quality Pre-K increases graduation rates and impacts future employment options? Our program also leverages the long-term social, cognitive, and economic advantages of bilingualism. A recent alumni study found that our children enter Kindergarten ahead of their Hispanic peers and maintain consistent growth and advantage through second grade!

3-year-old Program

Each of our classrooms is lead by two bilingual teachers, one a native-Spanish speaker, and one a native-English speaker. Our teachers are guided by Reggio Emilia, a student-centered pedagogy rooted in respect, responsibility, and community. Our teachers use the Creative Curriculum, a comprehensive, research-based, dual language curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning.

MECK Pre-K at CltBP

For 4-year-olds, we offer extended day classrooms at Charlotte Bilingual Preschool through partnership with MECK Pre-K. These classrooms are also each staffed by two bilingual teachers using the Reggio Emilia approach and the Creative Curriculum.

Two of our MECK Pre-K classrooms are part of our 3-year Green Room pilot program focused on facilitating the flow of social capital and improving language acquisition. In this integrated classroom model, half of the students come from our Spanish-speaking population and half speak English at home!
