La Casita Feliz students enjoy a warm and nurturing environment as they learn and play, immersed in Spanish language, culture, art, music and games. Our seasoned teachers guide your children in their journey of self-discovery, as they explore the world we live in, all in Spanish. We structure our curriculum to address all the important areas of early childhood development: social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical development.  Unique to our curriculum is learning about and working in our Global Youth Garden (Tierra de Niños ) as a science and community building component.
