The Spanish Immersion Program

Our Mission

Our mission at The Spanish Immersion Program is to provide our students with a rich and authentic environment to learn the Spanish language through creative and fun activities. Our total immersion approach to language learning is what separates us from other programs. In addition to a rich environment developed to promote everyday conversation in Spanish, our program offers age appropriate Preschool curriculum. We incorporate educational materials with cultural activities to provide a well-rounded fully immersed language experience that will prepare them for their future global needs.

Our Vision

To be recognized as an exceptional educational institution for language learning in the Greater Sacramento area; by providing quality services that are enriched with all the necessary elements for a successful learning and enjoyment of the Spanish language at an early age.

 Our Values


Commitment to teaching


Our Curriculum

Our curriculum was developed by Blanca Lawton, Director and Founder of the Spanish Immersion Program. Her approach to language learning involves a combination structured lessons with developmentally appropriate Play/Pretend Learning activities. The foundation of our program’s curriculum strongly encourages individuality and expression through imaginative play, exploration, music, dance, art and culture.

The Spanish Immersion Curriculum is divided into the following areas:

  • Conversational practical Spanish and Daily Routines
  • Play pretend activities
  • Hispanic culture and traditions
  • Language workbooks
  • Creative Subjects (arts and crafts, music and movement).

 Our History

The Spanish Immersion Program humbly began at the home of Blanca Lawton in 2004 Mrs. Lawton saw a need for a Spanish Preschool Age program that incorporated play, music, art, culture, values through a full immersion-style language learning process. Very quickly her program grew and there was a need to expand in 2007 Mrs. Lawton opened two locations.

The first location that opened is centrally located in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento and welcomes children from Sacramento and surrounding areas. The second location is near Old Folsom, near the Folsom Zoo. This location serves Folsom and the surrounding areas of El Dorado Hills, Granite Bay, Roseville among others.

Thanks to the support of parents, sponsors and the community, The Spanish Immersion Program is looking to relocate their Sacramento campus to a bigger location to accommodate the rising demand of services. More information on when and where the move will happen to come. 

 Our Director


Blanca was born and raised in Mexico City, Mexico. Her program and curriculum is inspired by traditional teaching techniques that encourage individuality. She developed her own creative didactic teaching techniques that have resulted in over 12 years of successful language teaching in the Greater Sacramento Area.

"Throughout my journey as a business woman and mother of two, with the firmness of maintaining Mexican traditions and the experience of seeing them grow up bilingual in California, I realized the barriers of learning a new language during adulthood and I understood that the best way to help them meet this challenge and be successful in this globalized world we live in, is to give the children the opportunity to learn a new language through full immersion.

That is how the Spanish Immersion Program is born, I invite you to become one of the many families who are proud to be part of the multi-language world."
