We offer the children choices whenever possible while introducing social guidelines for group participation. At this stage, the children are very interested in participating in small group activities and fantasy play as they develop a strong sense of self.

Afterschool (5 yrs old – 12 yrs old):
We partner with parents and schools to focus on strengthening skills taught in school. Teachers will continue to guide children to build a foundation of self-esteem, positive self-image, and independence.
We offer Spanish as a second language; it is an edge children get from a young age according to the demands of our globalized society.
Our children have the opportunity to learn Spanish through age-appropriate activities. Thus, our kids learn Spanish in the same natural way they would learn their first language. We teach our children common Spanish vocabulary such as colors, numbers, etc.
