Prospective Students

Escuelita’s Coming Relocation

In 2022, the Texas Department of Transportation informed us that they would be proceeding with a massive expansion of IH35. As a result of our location directly on the access road, this means that we will have to once again relocate. In the Spring of 2024, we finalized the purchase of a new building located on Bluestein Dr., just inside of 183.

As of now, our timeline for moving will be until August of 2025 at the earliest, or December of 2025 at the latest. We are deeply excited to never have to move again, and continue serving the wonderful families of Austin.

Please take our new location into consideration when deciding if you want to place your child on our waitlist for future enrollment.

Take a Virtual Tour

Due to our long waiting list, in-person tours are reserved for families who have been offered a space at Escuelita by a member of our Directorial Team.

Reading/Writing

Our students acquire the Spanish language naturally while they learn and discover the world around them. Activities include interactive reading, alphabet identification, tracing, writing, and language exposure through music.

Math/Science

We teach math and science through fun activities to learn about numbers and simple math through multi-sensory centers, art, puzzles, building, gardening, and imaginative play. Skills we practice include counting, sorting, grouping, creating patterns, adding, and subtracting.

Art

We have daily arts and crafts activities based on the thematic unit for each week and month. Skills we practice include drawing, tracing, cutting, gluing, painting, stringing items, sculpture, and more.

Social Emotional Learning

We have built a culture of respect for teachers and peers that includes using good table manners, taking turns, taking responsibility, and working cooperatively with classmates. Children learn the importance of compassion, sharing, honesty and respect through role-playing, games, reading, and discussion. 

Critical Thinking

Through hands-on activities and social interactions, children explore, observe, reflect, and problem-solve as they discover their talents and develop new skills.

 Application Process

Escuelita del Alma has a 2-3 year waiting list for almost all of our age groups. To get your child’s name on the waiting list, please submit an application here. Please note that due to the high volume of inquiries that we receive daily, we will not contact you until a space becomes available. Escuelita does not charge an application fee. 

  1. Fill out waitlist inquiry.
  2. In order to keep our very long waitlist manageable and up to date, we ask that you reach out to us via email every 6 months to confirm your continued interest in a space. If we do not hear from you within this time period, we will assume that you have found care elsewhere and will remove you from the list and you will have to reapply.
  3. Once a space becomes available in the appropriate classroom, our Director, Ms. Dina, will contact you by phone and/or email to offer you the space.
  4. Once accepted, you will be sent an enrollment form to complete and return, along with the following payments:
    1. $50 Registration Fee for new students (non-refundable) and payable to hold the slot when notified of availability
    2. $25 Annual Re-enrollment/Supplies Fee (payable to reserve the slot for an additional school year)
    3. Full month deposit (refundable with one month’s written notice of withdrawal and payable when child begins enrollment)
