Take a Virtual Tour

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not currently offering in-person tours. However, below is a virtual tour slideshow of the Escuelita del Alma rooms, staff, children and playgrounds.

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.
