Looking for ESL Curriculum: How to Teach Kids English

So this is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be.

How do you teach children ages 5-10 English?  Finding a set curriculum online is almost impossible.

I find I'll have to follow these steps:

1.  Contact ESL teachers from Chicago and ask best way to approach this.

2.  Contact latino organizations that could point me in the right direction.

3.  Figure out a way to customize the curriculum so that Spanish-speaking college students can teach kids.

4.  Figure out logistics:

Will this be an after-school program?
During school program?
 Will college tutors need to be trained by ESL teachers willing to help?
Will the partnership turn into college kids helping out in an ESL classroom?   
Or will they have a separate class time?
