Loving, Consistent Care By Experienced, Tenured Maestras

Loving, Consistent Care By Experienced, Tenured Maestras

Your child thrives in a warm, encouraging environment. Maestras, who have dedicated their expertise to the school for up to 17 years, provide loving and consistent care. Children feel loved and supported as part of a community.

Positive Discipline Builds Social-Emotional Skills

Maestras consider every interaction with every child an opportunity to develop emotional intelligence. Jane Nelsen’s trusted Positive Discipline method supports healthy communication and fosters a loving, family environment.

5 Ways Positive Discipline Helps Your Child Develop:

Your child receives support and feedback that is always kind and firm and at the same time, respectful and encouraging.

Connection helps children feel a sense of belonging and significance.

It’s proven that punishment works short-term but has negative long-term results.

Your child is absorbing valuable social and life skills for good character—respect, concern for others, problem-solving, accountability, contribution, cooperation, etc.

Invite your child to discover how capable they are and to use their personal power in constructive ways.

Outdoor Play For Physical Activity & Fun In Nature

Outdoor Play For Physical Activity & Fun In Nature

Your child enjoys daily outdoor play in safe, age-separated areas, building social and gross motor skills on age-appropriate equipment. With fruit trees and planters to care for, they learn about nature and feel a connection with their environment.

Fun Field Trips Bring Early Learning To Life

Field trips to the pumpkin patch, fire station, farm, or natural spaces for beautiful hikes are an exciting part of the calendar, opening children’s minds and broadening their horizons. We look forward to resuming our outings when it’s safe.

Daily Deep Cleaning & Air Purification For Good Health

Professional cleaning measures keep your child’s spaces spotless and fresh every day. Staff also carry out sanitization throughout the day, and air purification systems filter out airborne particles, germs, bacteria, chemical odors, and vapors to provide clean air.

Strict Security Measures For Your Peace Of Mind

Access controls restrict entrance to authorized people only, and a fenced yard provides protection and privacy. Your child is in the safe hands of maestras with CPR certifications and FBI background checks.

The Brightwheel™ App Keeps You Up To Date

Receive pictures, videos, and updates via your parent app, so you know what your child is up to. Participate in Positive Discipline parent workshops to support a loving communicative environment at home.

Parents sometimes worry that bringing up their children as bilingual will mean that they never really master what should be their native language. Research shows this is just not true. 

To quote from “The Local,” a Swiss online paper, “Research shows that children can learn to read in two languages at the same time, to the benefit of performance in both languages. Bilingually educated children are shown to read at a higher level than children educated in only language.  Bilingualism does more than refine children’s linguistic abilities – it also improves their cognitive abilities. In other words, it makes them brainier.”

We love Centro Armonia! Our son started out in an in-home daycare, which we loved, yet when we moved we had to find a new place to care for him. We knew, ideally, we wanted him someplace that valued relationships with families, created a sense of community, and focused not only on cognitive development yet also on social-emotional and language development. We strongly recommend Centro Armonia and deeply appreciate all of the staff that make the school such a special place.

When we put them in the school last fall, the only Spanish they knew was how to count to 10 and a handful of colors. Now they're correcting me when I try to speak to them. Besides the Spanish, the school is fantastic. The location is new and clean. The activities the kids do during week are fun and engaging. And the teachers really care about the kids. We're also very aligned when it comes to disciplinary philosophies and have to worked together with the school's owner (Claudia) to resolve any issues.

My son has been attending (since age 2.5) preschool here for about a year. During this time, he has grown so much and he has learned so much, including the Spanish language. He previously attended a small family daycare with Spanish speaking providers, but we primarily speak English at home. Almost right away, he began singing songs in Spanish and using phrases that he learned at school.

My wife and I were looking for a pre-school for our 3 year old but really wanted to focus on our son's Spanish at least before kinder garden. We were lucky enough to find Centro Armonia very close to our home. My son looks forward to going to school every day and we have seen tremendous improvements in his Spanish, language and social skills. Besides being a great pre-school for any ethnic background you get the bilingual benefit which your kid will thank you for later in life. Highly recommended!!

Centro Armonia is as good as it gets when it comes to caring for our daughter. All the Maestras at Centro Armonia have become part of our extended family, as they go above and beyond for our child. Since the time that our little one began at Centro Armonia, she's become so social with her amigos, amigas, and Maestras. Our daughter's Spanish is growing daily, and this aspect of her learning is truly transforming our home in a beautiful way.
