CultureKids is dedicated to teaching children the Spanish language. Founded in 1999, the company began with teaching the Spanish For Preschoolers curriculum. Responding to the parents' desire for quality program reinforcement materials, CultureKids professionally produced and released three audio CD’s in the spring of 2003. Also responding to parent requests for more exposure to the Spanish language, the first annual Summer Cultural Camp was held in the summer of 2003. CultureKids launched their newest and most extensive curriculum in January of 2006, the Spanish For The Elementary Years program. All of the CultureKids programs are academic based and offer unique and innovative curriculums. The lesson plans utilize diverse teaching methods to include games and interactive activities for introducing basic Spanish vocabulary.

CultureKids Mission Statement:

1. To introduce students to the Spanish language at an early age capturing the developmental ability within the students to absorb the language rather than translate it.

2. To work with students early within their developmental growth when they are at a stage with the ability to manipulate their tongues in order to formulate different sounds. This tongue manipulation enables the students to learn how to properly articulate the foreign language sounds.

3. To develop and foster an interest and love of the Spanish language and culture. Knowing that Spanish is emerging as the second language in the U.S., early exposure to the language builds confidence within each student. Those having completed the program are armed with a Spanish foundation vocabulary base when they begin the language within their own school.
