Executive Director
CHARLOTTE BILINGUAL PRESCHOOL


Overview:
Charlotte Bilingual Preschool (CltBP) is a five-star licensed preschool that prepares low-income Spanish-speaking students to enter kindergarten ready to learn. CltBP offers students a dual-language education using the Creative Curriculum and proven best practices for bilingual learners. In addition, the school provides parents with coaching, tools, workshops and resources to aid them as educational partners and advocates and ensure their children’s continued success in school. Recognizing that learning and development begins before birth, CltBP also offers an Infant/Toddler program for parents with children from birth to three years old, Creciendo Juntos (Growing Together). This program offers hands-on, experiential parent education classes that supports parents to be their child’s first teachers.

CltBP’s Board of Directors has put forth an ambitious strategic vision for the next several years: to be a pioneer in the 0 to 5 educational space by creating innovative, research-based solutions for preparing Latino children for success in school and life. It is CltBP’s intention to be an example of a unified Charlotte where low-income Latino families successfully cross social boundaries to form a diverse learning community that lays the foundation for young children to be global citizens.
