Do not worry too much, your children, as it has been said by others, will quickly absorb the new language. In any case, to make the transition easier, try to get them used, as quick as possible to the sounds of Spanish. Use language courses for kids, films, games, a private teacher or lessons, any language aid you can find. On the other hand, you will have to work hard to maintain their English skills and improve them. The kids are still at a learning stage and, unless they attend proper bilingual schools, Spanish will become their mother tongue as they use it for learning, and English will take second place. Although they would speak English at home, the domestic vocabulary is limited and they would need proper language tuition. We are not "born" speaking any particular language. We acquire it and the learning process continues throughout your life.
Good luck with the move!
