We at La Escuelita Arcoiris strongly believe the following strengths set us apart from other early childhood programs:

  • Play based, emergent curriculum, based on children's interests
  • Daily outdoor time – all year long
  • Experiential, open-ended activities and art (without protective clothing)
  • Volunteer-based parent involvement
  • Spanish immersion in both language and culture

Please take your time in answering the following questions. The information you provide will help us gain insight into your thoughts regarding early childhood experiences.

Preschool Development




We count on our families to help our program thrive. Volunteering creates a positive relationship with your child's school, builds community for all, and ensures that your child will blossom in his or her first educational setting. Service may include board membership, craft projects, shopping, fundraising, classroom projects, or any other activities in service of the school.
