Mission Statement:

My Little World is founded on the desire to provide young children the opportunity to learn a second language in a loving, caring and safe environment. We are proud to offer a Spanish instruction and immersion program, where children can learn the language in a natural way from a native speaker.
Our goal is to nurture all areas of development by creating a stimulating environment where the diversity and backgrounds of young learners are recognized and multicultural experiences are reflected through our curriculum and daily activities.

Belief Statements:

We believe that in the early years, learning occurs through experience in play. Therefore, we have developed a play-based curriculum where young learners construct their knowledge as they explore, experiment, discover, and solve problems in playful and unique ways. At the same time, we understand the importance of kindergarten readiness; with that in mind, we teach our preschoolers the skills needed for a smooth transition into kindergarten.
