We are a Spanish immersion Montessori preschool that sits between San Francisco's Noe Valley and Glen Park neighborhoods.   We offer all the academic benefits of a traditional Montessori school, and also invest in uniquely shaping the social and emotional development of each child.   We are a tight-knit community with many opportunities for parent involvement, cultural celebrations and outdoor experiences.  Our school has a large and bright classroom, separate nap room, kitchen area for cooking and a large beautiful outdoor space.  

It is our goal to help children enjoy themselves while enhancing their social, creative, and intellectual growth.
