When mixed, Bilingualism and Montessori create a powerful instructional strategy that accelerates learning and provides children with a strong foundation for success at school and in life. Bilingualism improves the brain’s executive function, improves focus and concentration, and develops critical, abstract thinking and task switching.
Excelled Montessori plus offers dual-language Montessori programs at its Spanish Grove Academy location and Spanish is also included as a supplement at its other campuses. You can read more about this topic in our latest blog. Read More

HOW WE BEGAN...
Spanish Grove Academy was founded in 2010 and celebrates being one of the first Spanish preschool programs in San Antonio. We are passionate about education, and we understand the importance of children learning through play and play behavior increasing cognitive function. Unlike many child-care centers, SGA was designed like a miniature school, offering children areas to explore outside of the classroom and playground. These amenities: our lab, library, and gymnasium, we still enjoy today - especially on days where our Texas weather doesn’t allow for outdoor play! We feel strongly that each stage of a child’s life is a building block. We are so proud of our school and our children’s enthusiasm for learning and fun at SGA!
Since inception, we have incorporated a theme-based, dual-language curriculum in our lessons and classroom experience. With our uniquely designed curriculum, we utilize Lakeshore’s comprehensive theme boxes for visual props and manipulatives with our curriculum, we’re able to offer an amazing, hands-on experience for each concept from math to dramatic play. Our curriculum is taught by multi-lingual educators, fully fluent in both Spanish & English languages; our teachers blend the different styles of education of Reggio Emilia *, Waldorf & Montessori*.
*SGA is a proud member of both the American Montessori Society & North American Reggio Emilia Alliance.
To further the success of our children transitioning to the NEISD dual-language program, we use Estrellita, a Spanish, dual-language reading program for our Traditional Pre-K4 and Advanced Pre-K3 & Pre-K4 classrooms.
At SGA, our commitment is to graduate students who are bilingual and have learned both Spanish & English languages in a creative and fun environment where children and families never doubt that their teachers care and want the very best for their education. With our flexibility in educational approaches, coupled with an emphasis on learning through play and exploration, we can successfully achieve our goal for our students, which is to be the most prepared for their transition to kindergarten!
