Day of the Dead Significant Family-Centered Day

The Day of the Dead is a significant family-centered celebration across Mexico, and Sayulita is no exception. Each year our parents construct an altar to honor deceased friends and family members. This year they honored Maria Montessori. Building the altar takes months of preparation starting at the school with crepe paper flower making and ending in the town's central plaza with the actual construction. Everyone gets involved.

La Escuela Cooperativa de Sayulita is 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.
