casa de niños

facilitating the education of curious minds


We begin with discovery. Each child is given the freedom to learn how to make choices and do work that is engaging to him or her.


Children ages 3-6 live in a world of wonder and the most effective method of learning is through imaginative play. In Casa de Niño’s the children's days are filled with both structured and unstructured activities that stimulate and exercise their powers of imagination. All learning activities in Casa de Niños follow daily and seasonal rhythms that connect the children to the world around them. That connection instills a sense of gratitude and reverence and promotes values of respect and love for all beings.

When a child can relate what they learn to their own experiences, their vital interest wakes up, their memory activates and what they learns becomes theirs.
