Philosophy

The Children’s Center for Language and Culture (ChiCeLaCu!) is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and offers full and part-time options at its Fairfax City and Falls Church/Tyson locations as well as various online classes. Children learn Spanish and are exposed to various Latin American cultures through a fun, long-term, and highly effective curriculum that combines in-person classroom learning and online classes with the visual and performing arts.

Learning another language benefits a child’s intellectual and emotional development. Our goal for our students is to achieve Spanish proficiency in a period of 3 to 4 years. We offer small classes and follow a highly effective and stimulating curriculum that combines classroom learning with the visual and performing arts.

Mission

Advance children’s academic achievement and emotional growth through effective, long-term Spanish Immersion programs where the arts combined with innovative teaching strategies encourage self-expression, creativity, and collaboration.

Vision

Prepare students to compete in a global economy while fostering respect and appreciation for cultural heritage, diversity, individual difference, and our natural environment.
