Los Amiguitos

Los Amiguitos was created in 2012. It is a multiage licensed school (pre-K 3 through 2nd grade for our regular program -and up to 5th grade in the afternoon classes). Los Amiguitos provides immersion in Spanish as well as educational, physical, environmental and socio-emotional development, with an emphasis on nature and community.

 

—- COVID19 UPDATE: We have reopened with no reported cases, and are offering outdoors education with safety measures and expectations for staff and families to enable children to socialize, learn and engage while minimizing risks of transmission.  You can check out the details in our COVID-19 Procedures.  Part time options are also open for children doing online education with public schools. ——

 

 

Los Amiguitos is an immersion, not a bilingual or dual language school: all instruction is done in Spanish.  Children with all levels of language benefit from this program equally.

A small school setting is a perfect stepping point between home and a regular school. With a low teacher/student ratio and a maximum of 20 children in two separate buildings, it ensures greater safety, quality education, greater individual attention, in a nurturing environment.

Children are by nature curious and eager to learn and experience. Los Amiguitos strives to offer them with an alternative education that meets their needs and enhances that love of learning and discovering. Activities are relevant, creative, meaningful and engaging to the children. They range from creative arts, nature exploration, music, drama, movement, children led activities, dancing, cooking, to storytelling, gardening, to individual and group projects, hands on and multi-sensory activities, among others.

We spend most of our day outdoors, learning to appreciate and care for nature. We integrate many natural elements in our activities; as well as use Montessori materials to enhance children’s active learning. All activities are designed to engage children’s curiosity, interaction, and multiple levels of development.

As an important element in developing a global, and open minded perspective in each one of our community members, we highly value diversity in families and staff, and strive to integrate a cultural rich  focus.
