We have a passionate commitment to promoting the Hispanic Language to young children while having fun. Our goal is to provide English-speaking children with a wonderful introduction to a second language and to help Spanish-speaking children maintain their native language. We strongly believe that natural play builds a powerful and lasting education foundation. We promote each child's social, emotional and cognitive development in positive ways while engaging their innate curiosity and creativity. We respect, support and guide each child according to their temperament, abilities and needs. In Mi Escuelita en EspaƱol children receive love, nurturing and personal security. Our goal is for children to establish deep friendships that will last and for parents to build community as well. We give children the opportunity to chose from a variety of designed activities of designed to encourage oral expression, art, math, writing and imaginative play.
