To prepare Spanish-speaking children for success in school and life by providing superior dual language, multi-cultural early childhood education.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg is a place where differences in language and culture are mutually enriching, and all children have greater access to advantage and opportunity.
Charlotte Bilingual Preschool (CltBP) is developing the model of culturally appropriate, dual language early childhood education for Latinx children and their families in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and our nation. We bring our many programs into the service of meeting our mission. Our two-generation model:
Provides 3- and 4-year-old Spanish-speaking children with superior dual language, multi-cultural preschool instruction in the only 5-star licensed dual language preschool program in North Carolina
Helps families build literacy and kindergarten-readiness skills for their children from infancy to 5-years-old
Offers family members the resources they want to become active participants in their children’s early childhood development
Trains the next generation of professionally certified dual-language early childhood educators
Expands our reach by building a decentralized dual language early education delivery system to replicate with partner sites and maximize our impact
Advocates state- and nationwide for our early-childhood education model, our children, and their families. We provide family members and supporters with the tools they want to voice their views to policymakers and remove the systemic barriers that have historically prevented them from thriving.
Building on this momentum,CltBP’sboard of directors approved a game-changing strategic plan in early 2020 that includes dramatic expansion over the next ten years, growing its impact to meet the needs of ten times as many children and their families annually. This plan calls for expanding reach through partnerships with other preschools, evolving the current preschool into a full-day early learning center, and developing a dual language early learning workforce
