Arco Iris Somos Pre-School has been created as a natural extension of Sra. Lupe's Mommy and Me circle times, Spanish Immersion Enrichment Programs, and her Spanish Immersion Spring and Summer Camps. Our pre-school operates as a full immersion Spanish program for children ages two through five. We offer full-day and half-day programs, with before and after care, ten months per year. 

Our spiral interdisciplinary thematic curriculum borrows liberally from Steiner, Montessori, Malaguzzi, Dewey, and Garner with the aim of reaching each child's mode of absorbing and processing the Spanish language and the cultures of the Spanish speaking world.

Arco Iris believes that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating place to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. Arco Iris strives to help children achieve their full potential in those areas.
