La Escuelita, Inc.
La Escuelita was founded in 2002 by two parents, both professional educators, who wanted bilingual play and preschool experiences for their children. La Escuelita's home is the vibrant and diverse Upper West Side of New York City. Our mission is to support bilingualism in children from birth through 3rd grade.
