Spanish

We help kids get a kick start on developing early language skills. We take advantage of the critical time in early development when acquiring language skills comes naturally and easily. It’s easier to pronounce unfamiliar, foreign sounds and to absorb new grammar rules is highly enhanced prior to age six.

Spanish is the 2nd most widely spoken language in the world, and in Texas. A Spanish teacher visits our classrooms each week to read, sing, and share a love of Spanish culture and language.

Music & Movement

In our classrooms, we balance quiet and active times. Young children’s attention spans are shorter and their bodies just want to move. So, in addition to class fun, we provide special music and movement activities for our preschoolers. We go to the music room each week to play drums, float a parachute, wave scarves, ring bells and just wiggle and dance with our movement teacher.

Cultural and Educational Events

Life means meeting people who are both like us and those that are different. At FPDS, we love to celebrate different cultures through music, dance, food and activities!

In October, we have a Halloween Hullabaloo. In December brings our “No-Rehearsal Christmas Pageant” where we might be sheep, angels or even wise-people to tell the Christmas story to our families at Christmas Chapel.  In February and March we enjoy celebrating Persian and Chinese New Years’ while we watch dancers and taste different foods. We finish up the year with and “Ole!” as we celebrate the tastes and sounds for Cinco de Mayo. And to end our year we slip, slide, splash, and blow bubbles at Mud and Water Week!
