    • Multicultural Environment

      We teach bilingualism & acceptance while promoting diversity in our inclusive environment.

    • Nurturing Socio-emotional Skills

      By using the Teaching Strategies Gold & Opening the World (OWL) curriculum for literacy and the Building Blocks curriculum in math, we develop your child’s learning skills as well as encourage curiosity and foster their empathy and understanding.

    • “I’ve had two children enrolled in IBA’s preschool and it has been a success for both of them – my children were taught Spanish, well fed, and cared for by the teachers as if they were their own. It’s an affordable program and I would recommend the school to any parents with children starting preschool.”

    • “It’s really good that he gets to go to a multicultural school and he gets to learn a little Spanish. It’s really helpful because he does use it [Spanish] a lot, especially at home.”

    • “To have our children be bilingual is the best gift that we can give them as parents.”
