When I was searching for a preschool to put my now eleven year old in, I found a Spanish Immersion program that was great on language but did not properly prepare my son for entering into Kindergarten. I was concerned with the lack of curriculum and focus in the school and realized there was a need to create a Spanish program that had a much more enriched core. We strive to develop a strong central curriculum that will help our children to succeed. We strive to have them be more than ready to enter into kindergarten with a great basis in language, culture and community! My daughter just completed her first year of kindergarten where she tested advanced in reading and writing in both English and Spanish.

Why is our name La PlaZita and not La Placita?
In our house we love the letter "Z," all three of our children's names start with Z's so we had to use literary license to change the correct spelling of La Placita to La PlaZita, thanks to Ziel, Zaylee and Zyana!
