The program is free and designed especially for families interested in a Spanish dual immersion experience. Preschool sessions are 3 hours, offered in both the morning and afternoon. The program includes:

  • Small class sizes (1 teacher or aide per 8 students)
  • Caring teachers and staff provide a nurturing learning environment
  • Focus on TK/K readiness skills
  • Priority enrollment into Russell Elementary Language Academy for transitional kindergarten.

Families interested in enrolling their children can contact Clinton Corner Family Campus at (714) 663-6298 or the Russell Elementary Language Academy at (714) 663-6151.
