Curriculum

At Lingo Tree Academy, we believe in the transformative power of bilingual education, and that is why our curriculum is delivered using the 80/20 immersion model. We understand that young children learn best through inquiry-based and play-based learning, which is why our approach combines these methods with hands-on activities. We recognize the importance of nurturing the child as a whole, and our curriculum is designed to address their social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Through engaging experiences and meaningful interactions, we aim to cultivate their language skills, foster critical thinking, and promote cultural understanding.

Meet the Teacher

My name is Nereyda Serrano and I have been an elementary teacher for 10 years. I obtained my post-baccalaureate in Elementary Education from Ottawa University in 2011 and began teaching Kindergarten soon after. In 2014, I received the opportunity to teach in a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) school in the Madison School District and immediately fell in love with the program. I’ve taught grades 4th-6th in the DLI program and was also a Spanish teacher for students 1st-4th grade. Throughout the years as a DLI teacher, I’ve received numerous hours of training in best practices and strategies for teaching in a Dual Language program. I have also had the honor of being a co-presenter at the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) national conference. I’m passionate about teaching and helping children discover their talents and abilities and I’m excited for the beginning of this new chapter as a preschool teacher. I have a level one fingerprint clearance card and I’m First Aid and CPR certified.


I have two amazing boys, Liam and Mateo who are 2.5 yrs and 8 months old. My husband is an electrical engineer and has been working from home since COVID started. We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to be at home with our two boys. We love to take walks around the park as a family and take family trips whenever possible. I look forward to the opportunity to meet your family and work with your child to make their preschool year a successful and memorable one.
