My daughter started at Mi Mundo preschool over a month ago. There are so many wonderful things about this school. They have interesting themes each week...from dinosaurs to planets to lunar new year. They provide children with interesting and creative art projects that are incorporated into the themes (think hand-made jet packs/telescopes, model dinosaurs, volcanoes, etc). The kids have fun while they are learning and creating. My daughter comes home asking questions about Earth and wondering about dinosaurs!
While she's been there, she's gained many independent skills. The school focuses on helping kids learn to do things themselves.
I love that they go outside each day even if it's raining, so the kids can move and breathe the fresh air. I also love the lack of Disney, princess, etc.
I enjoy all the feedback the parents get with weekly photo slide shows and e-mail updates about the school.
Oh...and, I almost forgot. All of the above, while the children learn or continue to develop their Spanish language skills!
The very best part: my daughter loves her school.
Highly recommend Mi Mundo! For more information about openings and tours, please contact Mi Mundo directly.
I want to write to recommend Mi Mundo Preschool, a new
school in the N. Oakland / S. Berkeley area near Shattuck
and Alcatraz. This school is, quite frankly, amazing. Why?
1) The sisters who run it are warm and very experienced
with children (they came from Rockridge Little School), and
are very intuitive about kids' needs but also willing to
stretch them. 2) The projects they do - everything from
making space helmets to study the planets, to painting old
records, to making footprint collages - are incredibly
creative and well-planned, matching seasons and holidays.
3) Spanish taught by native Spanish-speakers (and a good mix
of Spanish-ability amongst the kids). 4) The parent
communication is the best I've found - a daily ''log book'' of
activities and a weekly emailed slideshow of everything
they've done. 5) The outside space, complete with yard,
play structure, garden, and sandbox (they often eat meals
outside when it's nice). I could go on and on, but the best
recommendation is that my two daughters, ages 2 and 4.5,
wake up excited to go to school every day.
Mi Mundo es Mi Escuela!
