Prospective Students

Please be aware that there is currently a 2-3 year wait to enroll in all of our classrooms. Due to our very long wait list, we cannot schedule tours at this time. We will contact prospective families as space becomes available and hope to call you soon!

We may only have a few spots opening up each year, but we welcome your interest and encourage you to submit a waitlist application download here. We will let you know as soon as a spot opens up for your child.

More About Our School

Escuelita del Alma opened its doors in January, 2000, and now counts approximately 100 children who attend at one time. Its families comprise a diverse and eclectic range of ethnicities, socioeconomic levels and educational backgrounds.

On a daily basis, the children of Escuelita enjoy singing and dancing traditional Latin American songs, fingerplays and circle games (rondas) that previous generations of latinos grew up with, like “El patio de mi casa” and “La víbora de la mar” (the latino version of “London Bridge is Falling Down”), while also learning basic readiness skills like the colors, shapes and numbers. The children also learn about and interact in traditional activities such as making piñatas or altar installations for día de los muertos (Day of the Dead) to remember and commemorate their deceased ancestors.

We know that today’s fast-paced society forces many families to consume fast-food or sandwich meals. The managements of Escuelita is committed to providing organic and nutritious snacks and lunches for the children, and, therefore, provide a balanced menu of meals.
