HudsonWay Immersion School offers several programs designed to support our students beyond the school day and to benefit non-HWIS school students interested in language immersion.
Mommy & Me (ages 12 months to 3 years old)
Our Mommy & Me program for ages 1-3 provides a 100% Mandarin or Spanish immersion environment to introduce your child to the sounds and tones of a second language at a critical age for language learning. Through movement, music and storytelling your child begins to experience learning in a new language. Each session is focused on a story theme, such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so that learning is contextualized.
Afternoon Preschool (ages 2 to 4 years old)
Like our full-time day school preschool, Afternoon Preschool offers a relaxed environment using a full immersion approach to learning. Students can join 2, 3 or 5 afternoons per week, 1:30 to 3:30 PM.
Summer Camp (ages 2 to 12 years old)
Our Summer Camp program offers a classroom adventure to the Mandarin or Spanish-speaking world! Campers explore a weekly theme through science, art, music, cooking, and other hands-on activities. Experienced, native speaking teachers lead activities in a 100% Mandarin or Spanish immersion environment supporting campers of all language levels.
After School (ages 2 to 12 years old)
Our After School programs provide a fun and effective way for children to learn Mandarin or Spanish language skills. Teachers use theme-based learning along with hands-on activities to engage students. Classes are offered from 4:00 to 5:30 pm one to three days a week at our NJ campus and one or two days a week from 3:45-5:45pm at the NY campus.
Summer Abroad (ages 5 to 16 years old)
Summer in Spain – Join an exciting summer immersion camp in Spain this summer! Students age 8 or older can come unaccompanied or families with children age 5 can participate in the family immersion camp. The trip will take place July 30-August 15, 2017. We have partnered with a leader in Spanish language education with a history of over 30 years’ experience to provide students a full immersion experience in Spain to improve Spanish language proficiency and develop deeper cultural understanding.
