1st - 5th Tupelo Program

Program Description 

Tupelo is located at Marin School, and is a part of Albany Children’s Center. Tupelo serves children kindergarten-5th grade, providing quality school-age care before and after the elementary school day. The Tupelo program is safe, nurturing and educational. Tupelo is committed to promoting, supporting and enhancing all areas of a child’s development. We strive to provide a balance of educational, social and recreational opportunities to make our program special for the children in our care.

All children enrolled in Tupelo in the afternoon have the opportunity to learn Spanish as a part of the program. The Spanish Enrichment program is conducted by a native Spanish-speaking teacher and is based on extensive research-proven methodologies and approaches to second language acquisition. Children learn Spanish through music, stories, games, movement and outdoor activities in a fun and meaningful learning environment. The Spanish curriculum is based in thematic units, in which children will explore basic vocabulary, expressions and commands, through meaningful interactions and fun communicative activities.
