“Real learning, real culture” is the motto at Alma Flor Ada, says founder Lucilla Dávila. Alma Flor Ada, a year-round Spanish Immersion Early Learning Academy, isn’t your average early learning center. The first of its kind in Woodbury, the school offers children ages 33 months to kindergarten the opportunity to be a part of an innovative program that offers the foundation of daycare and academics all-in-one.
Alma Flor Ada promotes an all-inclusive, engaging, multilingual learning environment for all children through Spanish language and culture. The program, which includes Spanish literacy and culture, Spanish immersion pods, music, art and STEM academics, is taught by bilingual, certified and native speakers.
“[There has been] lots of traction [and] a huge demand from the Woodbury community to have kids be bilingual,” Dávila says. “[And we’re] satisfying the need from the community for immersion.”
Through Alma Flor Ada, parents are given the opportunity to enroll their children in a program that will help achieve success in the ever competitive, intertwined, global economy.
