Mi Casita Bilingual Preschool and Cultural Center
Review from the 2019–2020 Daycare, Preschool, Pre-K, and K SurveyReview: MiCasita is a new school that just opened officially end of 2019/beginning of 2020. The program offers Spanish immersion and its pedagogy is Emilio Reggio inspired. We've been a part of this program since October 2019. Prior to its official opening, MiCasita offered playgroups in Spanish, which we attended part time until the school's official opening. (After its official opening, we became full time.) My child loved MiCasita's teachers and really took to the pedagogy of child-led learning. Although we do not speak Spanish at home, my son took to the program without a problem. Their brains are truly primed for learning languages before the ages of 6/7! As a parent, I loved the space, interactions with the teachers and seeing my child develop his language skills, social emotional skills. I also love that the program is oriented towards community - many of its outdoor activities involved neighborhood locations. As a full time working parent, I also appreciated that the program offers early and after care. (8-6) Most of my *issues* with the school was related to the late opening (the school was supposed to open by Sept of 2019!) Many of these issues should not be present for the following year. I would send my child back if I had to do it over again. Amenities offered: Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Possibly more detailed ways of communicating with parents about the child's development. I have received some feedback about my child re: his development, but this hasn't been consistent. Still felt a bit like a structured playgroup, rather than a school program.
Review from the 2019–2020 Daycare, Preschool, Pre-K, and K SurveyReview: The program is a Spanish immersion program (but not full immersion). My daughter loves Mi Casita. Her teachers are communicative, passionate about teaching, and truly seem so happy and excited to be there teaching our kids each day. The school's founder, Eva, is incredible! This has been a crazy time and she has done an amazing job of keeping everyone up to date on any changes with the state's guidelines, answers emails quickly, and is nurturing with the students. Amenities offered: Has after-school options What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Nothing! I love it!
