What Parents are Saying About our Spanish Immersion Pre-School
"We have been at Arco Iris Somos since our daughter was 2 1/2 years old (she is now 4 years old). Our daughter loves going to school! It has been incredible to see her growth and development in such a warm, nurturing environment. We love the small size of the school, the focus on organic whole foods for snacks, and the individual attention paid to our child by both the teachers and the school director, Ms. Lupe Marks. It is also a very friendly and welcoming parent community. In addition, we are so happy with our daughter's rapid acquisition of Spanish, and we have enjoyed learning Spanish along with her. We would highly recommend Arco Iris Somos to any family looking for a great preschool experience!" A.S February, 2018
Arco Iris Somos (AIS) has been a wonderful experience for my twins and our family. My twins started at AIS at the age of 33 months, and were embraced by kind, affectionate teachers who guided them and their classmates to being good friends and students. Even more importantly, my twins have always loved going to school, their teachers and friends. They feel welcomed, loved and confident. Two years later, they are now in the older classroom and continue to prepare socially and otherwise for kindergarten. I have no doubt that they will be ready. We could have never asked for a better preschool. A.C. January, 2018
"I have been so impressed with how smoothly things are going so far. Emily loves going to school...I am excited for her to be learning Spanish and she takes such pride in telling others that she is going to 'Spanish immersion' school."
"Thank you so much for your excitement and your attention to each student and family!"
"Celeste has grown in ways that I could have never imagined in less than two weeks. She is more communicative since she is part of Arco Iris Somos. She is getting home with something new everyday. And what we really love about Celeste these days is that she is becoming more consciously aware of herself."
"...I feel extremely confident leaving Jake in her capable hands. To both of you I would like to extend a thanks for paying close attention to Jake and seeing him so well. From the home visit to Jake's first day, when Claudia remembered he has a big bear at home and showed him a special book about bears, to today when Claudia brought me in the hall to tell me how Jake is doing, I am grateful for the effort and time and kidness you have given us."

What Parents Are Saying about our Staff
"All teaching staff, including the Director, are easily available for questions and have been a valuable parenting resource to us."
" In addition to their normal classroom routines and activities, the teachers work independently with each student whenever necessary to ensure they are developing age appropriate skills. For example, my girls received extra help for cutting and holding scissors correctly. Sra. Lupe also gave us extra materials and recommended games to play at home to continue to practice and develop each necessary skill.
