At Solecito, we believe in a multicultural society that embraces every child as a unique contributor to our future. We focus on developing each child’s potential to the fullest while teaching them Spanish. That’s why our one-of-a-kind programs are designed to foster a child’s natural curiosity by encouraging creative exploration, expression, collaboration and problem solving. We are a licensed Language Preschool with an intimate learning environment.
Our teacher’s have over 15 years of experience teaching Spanish to young children as a foreign language. We pride our selves on caring for the whole child. We work to expand our students’ horizons by integrating language immersion into fun and engaging age-specific activities. The result is an educational environment that facilitates positive social interactions and flexible learning, all while celebrating cultural diversity. Learning a second language has many cognitive benefits to the individual learner, but even more so the gift of learning another language helps us grow as a global community,
We are proud to have students and families from all over the world. We celebrate diversity in all that we do.
