Viaquenti Academy has a new location!

When we knew about the Viaquenti Academy’s new location we were so glad since, as you may have noticed, there are moms and strollers everywhere in the city. An easily accessible preschool is always welcome in a neighborhood with lots of families with little ones.

Viaquenti Academy’s new location is perfect for the young families of Jersey City and Hoboken since it is located within a walking distance from the 2nd Street Light Rail Station in Hoboken.

Highlights:

Located at the Cast Iron lofts, a factory that has been reborn as a beautiful high rise residence, this new location has very wide spaces, halls and classrooms and thanks to its large windows, students can enjoy vast amounts of light all day long.

Now at summer time, the school is quiet but you can still feel a warm atmosphere as you walk in the hallways with walls decorated by the pieces of art made last year by the little students.

 

Apart from an outside open space, kids also have access to a special room with a little Gym where they can climb, jump, dance and enjoy other fun activities with special guests that Viaquenti arranges for regularly.

About Viaquenti Academy:

Viaquenti Academy offers Infant, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade programs which address the child as a whole supporting his and her social, emotional, cognitive, and creative growth. They encourage children to socialize, share, make friends, interact cooperatively, gain independence and self-control and reach their full potential. They also help students create a real sense of multiculturalism through the acquisition of languages and cultures other than their own, allowing them to easily reach an understanding and appreciation of others. Their goal is to develop compassionate and knowledgeable individuals with different interests who share the world through respect and cooperation with each other.

Viaquenti Academy offers Summer camp in addition to their Academic Year, both camp and the school year offer Bilingual morning programs where English and Spanish speaking teachers works side by side to create and teach lessons in both languages, and Spanish Immersion After School programs. Each class will have at least one bilingual teacher, of which many are native speakers, who aim to make learning the languages fun and rewarding in a supportive environment.

Viaquenti Academy of Jersey City is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Viaquenti Academy of Jersey City believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Programme). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Michelle Timek Yoga is based on Strala Yoga’s method, the movement systems that ignite freedom. This approachable and intuitive style of practice focuses on movement, rather than posing or posturing. You get to be in charge of doing what feels great every time you practice. Each movement made is guided by the breath, so it feels natural, rhythmic and organic. Since every person is unique, every person’s movement is also unique. This is great news for everyone, especially for those new to practicing yoga. This freedom of movement gives individuals the opportunity to truly be aware, listen, connect and feel into one’s self — safely and easily, without force or strain — in any given moment or situation. People can get more tuned into their bodies and less out of their heads, free from obligation, judgement or pre-conceived expectations. By creating this expansive space to exist in, the only thing left is to discover what you’re capable of doing and being! Visit our website for class descriptions and details.

Spanish lessons for all ages and levels
Spanish Flyer-page-001
Fun, creative Spanish lessons for all ages and levels online or in your home, a cafe or my studio in Jersey city and Hoboken.
Teaching is my passion because I love to see students learn and accomplishing their goals. I enjoy seeing them  take language risks,  feel proud of themselves, and communicate with Spanish speaking relatives.
I tailor my lessons to the needs, interests and learning styles of my students.  With kids I use objects, movement, songs, games to get them engaged.  For those who can write, I find it very effective to give them creative homework. I help them master all the areas of the language in a creative meaningful way.
