La Escuela Cooperativa de Sayulita
An innovative educational opportunity for our youngest children
- In June we held our preschool graduation outside at a local ranch and honored 13 graduates. This is an annual fiesta where the children bring parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to join in the festivities.
- Escuela Cooperativa partners with a local community organization, Mujeres Movimiento to offer an after school English Language program, Ingles Divertido, for children aged 6-11. There is such a demand for English instruction that we are increasing enrollment. Click the donation button below to sponsor a child.
- In the spring, the children planted seeds in El Jardin de los Ninos. After tending the garden with water every day, they harvested the mint and took some home to their families. In the fall, we will introduce the composter to our new students.
A collaboration of local families and educators to create an innovative pre-school for 3-5 year old children
La Escuela builds on the natural curiosity of our students to develop a love of learning. We follow a Montessori-style approach: to help children learn independently, retaining the curiosity, creativity and intelligence with which they were born.
Each classroom is considered the “children’s house.” The teachers prepare and maintain the physical, intellectual, and social/emotional environment within which the children will work and play. This all works together to create an environment where the kids, parents and staff feel connected and invested.
Where Everyone's Involved
Instead of paying tuition, parents contribute their time by preparing healthy lunches, cleaning the classroom and maintaining the grounds.
They attend monthly meetings and participate in special activities such as building an altar for the Day of the Dead on the town’s central plaza.
From 9:00 – 2:00 Monday through Friday, we offer an educational curriculum that includes basic literacy and numeracy skills. We supplement this with weekly music, dance and yoga lessons. Instruction is delivered in Spanish.
