Solecito is an incredible preschool and we feel fortunate to have had two of our children attend the morning program. The teaching team is warm, caring and extremely dedicated to making the program an incredible developmental experience for children. The imaginative games, activities and art projects are impressive and our children have flourished. It is a unique and special place for children to grow and develop.
My husband and I were nervous when we began the preschool search. We were not looking for a Spanish immersion school, but rather a school that would nurture and be patient with our spirited little boy as he learns to regulate his emotions. We heard positive feedback from neighbors about Solecito and for that reason we decided to meet with Casey and Claudia. It was an easy decision once we took the tour. Since that time, our expectations have been far exceeded. Casey and Claudia run a Spanish immersion program that feels like home to my son. They mother him. Gently nudge him forward through challenges. Patiently and enthusiastically greet him every new day. We really feel the Spanish is a huge bonus. I never imagined that my son would be truly bilingual- speaking Spanish fluently for 8 hours a day. We can see how it has opened his mind to a curiosity about people and the world. I highly recommend Solecito to any family looking for a preschool in Seattle. My son feels emotionally safe to take risks and make mistakes and try again. He is happy and full of energy and stories when we pick him up everyday. I’m amazed at the new curriculum being developed on a regular basis.
Play is a big part of my sons day at at Solecito, as it should be. Through play kids explore, make connections, and define who they are. The play is always themed. There is a purpose for most activities. These hard working and creative teachers utilize seasons, festivities, shapes, and anything imaginable; to engage these young minds. If you want your kids to be surrounded by lots of love and attention, you have hit home. Liam loves Solecito!
My son has been attending for half a year and he loves it so much that he even wants to go Saturday morning. I highly recommend it!
“Thank you so much for teaching and inspiring our children! You have such a gift,”
My children have gained and maintained their Spanish language skills while working with Casey over the last 7 years. Casey, has a fun and creative approach keeping kids engaged and learning at the same time. My kids say; “We get to do art and Casey helps us learn without just sitting quietly and doing books. Spanish is fun”. I highly recommend Casey and feel good that my kids aren’t just going to another class, but are truly enjoying learning.
