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.
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.
