At Oruguitas Preschool, our mission is to foster a love of learning and growth in children through a holistic approach to development. We believe in nurturing the cognitive, physical, and social-emotional aspects of each child, while embracing and valuing the cultural diversity of the Bay Area. Biliteracy is very important to the development of children. Our Spanish Immersion setting provides an inclusive and immersive learning environment, where children can thrive and reach their full potential. Children will be able to learn basic Spanish which includes but are not limited to the alphabet, colors, vocabulary, animals, numbers, geometric shapes, science, math, and many more! We understand that no two children have the same style of learning or skills however we believe that all children have the power to learn, are creative, and can succeed with appropriate assistance and help.
Our curriculum is based on the belief that play is a child's natural way of learning and developing with an emphasis on biliteracy and dual language learning. We take a holistic approach that includes the cognitive, physical, linguistics, and social-emotional areas of development. Our goal is to create a fun, engaging and stimulating environment where children can explore, discover and grow while also learning basic Spanish.
We value diversity, respect, guidance, support, community, and above all education for all. Whether it is education that is geared towards early childhood development or education about the history of this country, everyone has a right to an education and one that is truthful and beneficial. At Oruguitas Preschool, we also value play and exploration for young children. A young child cannot understand complex histories however, they can learn to address their immediate problems through dramatic play. Dramatic and fantasy play are vital to the developmental stages that children need in order to become successful. We value the development of mindfulness and communication and hope to be able to build and establish effective and mutual relationships with all children, families, and parents in order to help children in their growth through all developmental domains.
