THE STORY:

We are the first Spanish dual language preschool on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and one of the first in NYC. And, we are not selfish! We love spreading our experience and knowledge to fulfill our mission in as many  ways as possible.

Our mission? To support bilingualism in children from birth to 3rd grade. 

La Escuelita opened its doors in 2003 with the strong commitment to create a school around three core values, which still constitute the basis of our community:

Bilingualism. The only thing more amazing than watching your child progress from babbling to single words to full sentences is watching him/her do it in two languages. Using research-based practices, La Escuelita immerses children in a rich and engaging linguistic environment, fostering the development of bilingualism and biliteracy in students from all language backgrounds. The results speak for themselves, with huge benefits for all types of families: Spanish-speaking families looking for balanced growth in both Spanish and English, bilingual families seeking to preserve a heritage language, and English-speaking families desiring the incredible cognitive and cultural benefits of being bilingual.

Play-based learning. La Escuelita’s developmentally appropriate curriculum is apparent to parents every day. They hear about it from their children, in daily stories about the new dance they learned, the strange substance they stuck their hands into at the sensory table, the intricate block city they built that day. They hear about it from teachers, who personalize their interactions and create an environment where exploration and play drive learning. Most importantly, they see it every morning as their children bound into the classroom with a smile.

Diversity. La Escuelita has an unshakable commitment to welcoming families of diverse backgrounds. This not only fosters a warm and open environment, but also promotes authentic and valuable learning opportunities. Educationally, our team of teachers comes from a wide variety of Spanish-speaking backgrounds. By providing models of at least two different dialects in each classroom, we expose our students to the full range of cultural and linguistic variety in the Spanish-speaking world. In addition, each member of our community brings a unique experience and perspective, positively embraced by both children and their families. Joining the La Escuelita community means embracing the challenges and growth opportunities that result from being immersed in a diverse environment.

La Escuelita offers a unique preschool experience to families who value bilingualism and play-based learning, while being engaged in a diverse and stimulating community. We encourage you to visit the school to see for yourself the wonderful opportunities that are created each and every day that reflect La Escuelita’s defining three core values.

Help us become stronger and expand our wings!
