Does my child need to speak Spanish? No, we will speak Spanish so your child can be immersed and use the language as he/she needs.

What happens when my child becomes 3 years old? We will adapt the space and materials for your child’s needs.
What is the adult-to-child ratio at La Escuelita? One adult to five children.
Can my child attend part time? La Escuelita does offer part time options. Please inquire.
Does La Escuelita provide lunch? La Escuelita provides two daily snacks consisting of organic seasonal fruits and nuts (provided none of the children in the group have allergies). Families will need to pack their child’s lunch daily.
Are uniforms required? No. Just dress your child in comfortable clothes that allow mobility.
What happens if we use reusable diapers? We encourage sustainable practices, so reusable diapers with liners are welcome. We will handle them safely and send them home with your child to be washed daily.
What happens if my child is still breastfeeding? We will handle breast milk appropriately and bottle feed. Moms are always welcome to nurse while they are here, and we will provide a comfortable breastfeeding space.
