Our Philosophy

Spanish for fun!’s play-based philosophy allows children to learn on their own terms and at their own pace in a learning environment that is natural for their age groups. Sff!’s play–based curriculum, which is taught entirely in Spanish, gives students the tools they need to become academically successful in both Spanish and English. Additionally, we also know that nurturing a child’s social emotional state is just as important. Therefore, we expose students to Dr. Gary Chapman’s innovative 5 love languages to promote social-emotional development.  Spanish for fun!’s Raleigh learning center’s unique curriculum, which borrows from Spanish immersion curriculum, international curriculum and North Carolina’s early education creative curriculum, paired with our emotional development methods is the Spanish for fun difference!

Sff! Recognizes that play is very important for a child’s development. According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children there is much more to play than meets the eye. Along with reducing stress and childhood obesity, play has shown to help children to develop cognitive skills, with vocabulary acquisition, social skills and more.
