Bilingual Curriculum

The Casa Creative Curriculum is the NAEYC approved, research-based Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum® infused with Casa’s unique teaching objectives of Spanish immersion, cultural learning, and social responsibility.

Our toddlers learn through the use of Books, Arts & Crafts, Puppet Shows, Songs, Music, Choice Playtime in Interest Areas, Themed Projects, and Sensory Activities. Each child participates in small group activities to promote individual attention, takes part in enrichment classes, and of course – dancing!

Enrichment Activities

Toddlers enjoy the fun experiences of our enrichment activities. These include family appreciation events, cultural celebrations, special guests, volunteers, and more!

Daily Reporting

Families can view every activity their toddler participates in from eating and napping to photos of your child engaging in art and music with their teachers. At Casa, we use the Daily Connect app which allows us to report every aspect of your child’s day.

Diapering

As an environmentally friendly child care center, we provide cloth diapers for all children to reduce our carbon footprint. Cloth diapers and wipes are provided but families are welcome to bring their own diapers and wipes if they choose.

Daily routine

Peace of Mind

Can’t say enough good things about this place! The peace of mind that comes with dropping our son off at a clean, professional, well managed place is priceless! There is tons of space in the classrooms for the kids to roam, not to mention the huge gym and rooftop playground. Even in the winters, kiddos won’t be bored! We love it here!

Clean and Safe Environment

We have been at Casa de Corazón for 4 years and have been very pleased with our experience.  We love that when we are at work, we know that our kids are well taken care of and in a very clean and safe environment. The teachers are amazing and have become like family to us.  In addition to the teachers and facilities, we really feel good about the organic food and cloth diaper program. We would highly recommend Casa to any family looking for a great learning center.

Our Daughter Loves It!

Our daughter transitioned to Casa into the toddler room in mid-November. I don’t know what we expected but we were prepared for it to be a difficult transition given her age. She has done so well and we are certain this is because of the care and affection her teachers showed her from day one. Before she made friends, she would tell us about the “hugs” from teachers and activities she would do with them. They were totally willing to work with us on potty training and we so appreciate all their hard work every day. Our daughter loves coming to “school.”
