Sarasota’s Premier Spanish Preschool & Language Academy

Born in the spirit of connecting cultures, our guiding principle is to impart the knowledge of a second language, its culture, and its traditions to promote understanding across linguistic barriers. We serve all ages, from toddlers in our preschool, to teens, to adults.

Boutique Preschool

Give your child a wonderful learning experience from day one.

Our unique fusion of Montessori and traditional curriculum allows children, 2-5 years old, engage in a safe and nurturing learning environment as they develop their Spanish language skills. We offer the best of both worlds by providing boutique preschool learning in a traditional classroom or a Spanish immersion classroom – or even a combination of both. In addition, your child can thrive at our preschool:

  • Maximum of 8 children per class, providing individual guidance and a safe learning environment for your child.
  • One-on-one attention and certified, native-speaking teachers maximize educational outcomes.

Our team of native-speaking language instructors have more than 30 years of combined experience, and teach according to the most proven methods, focusing on cultural immersion.

Spanish Academy & Tutoring for Students

Language is vital for our students not only in high school but in life. Being fully bilingual could be their advantage in college, their careers, and beyond. 

A Strong Foundation for a Lifetime

Our passion for sharing the Spanish language and culture gives students of all ages the opportunity to expand their knowledge, arm themselves for the future, and excel in their language studies. After-school classes are available, and we offer summer classes for those who may have fallen behind or want to get ahead.


Our teachers draw on age-appropriate material across all subjects – vocabulary, math, geography, art and more to create fun, interactive lessons that excite students’ interests and curiosity. 


We recognize that this is a critical time of transition, and we offer specific classes that help make part of the transition easier.  Our goal is to make learning engaging and fun.


Language classes in high school are often more advance, which can be overwhelming for students. We combine our curriculum with the student’s school lessons to help them gain a genuine understanding of the language fundamentals.  



Spanish Tutoring for Adults

Whether you are preparing for a vacation and in need of some conversational basics, or if learning a language will check off an item on your bucket list, we have the perfect class for you!

We offer small classes and private tutoring lessons that allow adult learners to quickly build vocabulary and confidence. Students learn from native speakers who help perfect pronunciation and master grammar for proper writing. We incorporate art, geography, current events, and history into our lessons to make them fun and engaging.

Each student is given a personal evaluation when registering so that we can place you in the class that is best for you.
