La Escuela Cooperativa de Sayulita
An innovative educational opportunity for our youngest children

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.
The 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. Our new after-school program is for 4-8 year old children and introduces them to English language.
