About us
La Escuelita Bilingual School (Columbia City) is a 40+ year old bilingual licensed child care center serving children ages 12 months - 5 years old in Seattle. We began in 1979 and was created to meet the needs of a diverse community that values quality instruction, cultural relevancy, and the addition of a second language. Our curriculum has evolved over the decades and is often used as a model for other institutions. We provide children with a dual language education of English and Spanish. Additionally, our educational environment supports the development of each child with their home culture and language in mind.

 La Escuelita Bilingual School began in 1979 and was created to meet the needs of a diverse community that values quality instruction, cultural relevancy, and the addition of a second language. Our curriculum has evolved over the decades and is often used as a model for other institutions. We provide children with a dual language education of English and Spanish. Additionally, our educational environment supports the development of each child with their home culture and language in mind.

Our goal is to promote the progress, competence, respect, and appreciation of our students. We recognize that parents are the first and primary educators of young children, and our staff understands that culturally-specific child-rearing practices are of critical importance in the development of each child. Because of this, our educators work to establish strong partnerships with parents and are committed to a continuous dialogue that supports the development of their children. 

We have established ourselves over the past 30 years as advocates for bilingual, bicultural teachers. Our educators are encouraged to become agents of social change. Our quality of instruction and child care is rooted in the years of experience that our directors and educators have. With an innovative curriculum implementation, the high scores achieved when assessing students, educators, and management, and the low turnover rate in teachers and support staff make us a leading bilingual school in Seattle.

My wife and I were very impressed with the school and the information that was shared with us. After having gone through the virtual tour, we feel even more strongly about having our daughter receive her early education at La Escuelita. Our virtual tour guide answered all our questions, regarding curriculum, daily routines, safety protocols, and hours of operation. Most importantly, our tour guide went into the details of La Escuelita's mission; we were very excited because of how much it was in alignment with our values. Our home and daughter is of Afro-American and Afro-Latino heritage and we fundamentally believe that it is important for her to acquire both English and Spanish language skills. We also want our daughter to be emersed in an environment where she and her heritage is embraced and does not feel pressure to downplay aspects of her cultural identity. We hope to be able to visit La Escuelita in person one day soon!
