Our Escuelita program has been running since 2007. Throughout its existence, teachers have developed a highly enriched experience for 2.5-4 year old children. The program is play-based, and centers around the child as explorer and active learner. Classrooms are large so that children can experience a variety of teachers, experts, and environments, but children learn and play in small groups with one teacher/aide per group.
As in all of our ECC classes, our goal is to help children develop autonomy, creativity, and critical thinking skills and to support their journey as life-long learners. We encourage language development in both Spanish and English, an emergent understanding of science and the arts, and the development of social-emotional skills.
