La Escuelita provides a high-quality learning experience through immersion in the Spanish language. La Escuelita Arcoiris began in September of 1999 in the home of founder, Megan Rooney. Her goal was to share with her community the benefits of second-language learning at an early age. She began with five children in addition to her own and has grown the program to be a three-classroom school involving over 30 families comprised of a toddler class, preschool, kindergarten, after school programs and summer camp.
We firmly believe that exposure to a second language through immersion expands children intellectually, culturally and emotionally. As we build bridges to other cultures, we encourage children to invite diversity into their lives and take on the role of living, breathing bridges themselves.
