About Us

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.

A School Where Everyone's Involved, Especially The Parents

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. 

Friends of Escuela Cooperativa de Sayulita is a 501©3 organization. All donations are tax deductible and applied directly to the educational experience. There are no administrative costs.
