HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, January 2, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Houstonian Club is helping children become bilingual through its exclusive collaboration with LIPP Schools. Recognized as a Platinum Club of America, this upscale members-only health and fitness facility in Houston now stands out as the only facility in Texas—perhaps even the entire country—to provide a unique language immersion preschool program for children aged 18 months to 5 years.
“The Houstonian Club is a globally recognized, premier luxury resort, where the health of body and mind meet,” says Alcira Molina-Ali, President of LIPP Schools. “Similarly, LIPP Schools strives to offer top-tier immersion academics to families, coupled with the convenience and amenities of private preschool within The Houstonian Club.”
Available exclusively to The Houstonian Club members, LIPP Schools operates year-round with part and full-time programs that follow a traditional eight-hour school day. According to Molina-Ali, the child-to-teacher ratios are kept low, one teacher for every five students, to help boost language acquisition and give children the academic edge they need to be kindergarten-ready. Children receive teacher-led academics by a native speaker in either Spanish or Mandarin.
LIPP Schools at The Houstonian Club welcomed its first small group of students in August and has seen a receptive and engaged member community. Molina-Ali notes that early language exposure benefits a young child’s development and adds that children who learn a second language typically outperform monolingual peers in many developmental milestones, including mathematics, music, and early literacy.
“We are always looking for unique ways to enrich our members’ lives – whether it is with the newest fitness innovations, enhanced recovery options, or a unique program for children,” says Cher Harris, Club General Manager. “When this opportunity with LIPP Schools presented itself, it seemed like a great amenity for The Houstonians Club’s members and their families.”
LIPP Schools at The Houstonian Club is now enrolling for 2024. For more information or to register in LIPP Schools at The Houstonian Club, contact [email protected] or call 713.263.6594.
