Preschool Spanish Immersion in Oakland

Hello, 

I'm in search of a Spanish Immersion preschool in Oakland - ideally near Glenview.  Do you know of any that prepare kids well for kindergarten? 
I have a 2.5 year old boy and would love him to start this Spring or next Fall. 

Thank you!

EBI and KSS. They are both great programs. We did not choose them because we wanted more play based and less academic but they prepare kids well for K. 

La Plazita on 35th and MacArthur is Spanish immersion and prioritizes kindergarten readiness. I have a 2 yo and a 4 yo there and we love it.

We've been very happy at Colibri, which is near Piedmont. Our oldest graduated from there and was in a good spot for kindergarten academically, socially and emotionally, despite him finishing in the midst of the pandemic. Our 4 year old is there now and our 2 year old will start there next year. I think the program is well balanced- enough structured activities with the maestras to give the kids a good foundation in Spanish and introduction to pre-literacy skills but also a developmentally appropriate amount of free play. Our oldest is now in an immersion elementary school and doing well.
