Full-Day Programs That Prepare For The Future

Your child is ready for the school years ahead with full-day programs that balance academics, social and emotional learning, practical skills, and fun. Local schools note how well prepared our students are, and being bilingual opens doors for educational opportunities.

Broad-Ranging Benefits With 100% Language Immersion

Exposure to a second language at a young age improves literacy and communication skills in both languages and all-around cognitive abilities. Your child gets a boost with total Spanish immersion from experienced native speakers. 

Small Classes For Focused Learning & Preparation

With 1 maestra to no more than 12 children (better than the state-required ratio), your little one gets the attention they need to hit their critical developmental milestones and build their school-ready skills.

State Standards Ensure Readiness & Success

Using the California standards for Pre-K curricula, your child’s maestras ensure that they master critical academic concepts and gain confidence with the literacy and numeracy skills required to transition smoothly into school.

Creative & Cultural Enrichments For A Well-Rounded Experience

Your child looks forward to exciting activities like folkloric dance and yoga to broaden their horizons. As they uncover new hobbies and explore new interests, they learn to use their bodies to express themselves.

Positive Discipline For Social-Emotional Learning

Your child’s maestras use Jane Nelson’s Positive Discipline philosophy to model respect and teach practical, emotional communication skills. Your little one learns to be a confident, empathetic, positive contributor to their classroom.

Outdoor Play Brings Them Close To Nature

Your child gets time outside every day to run, climb, ride trikes, and explore with their friends. An age-appropriate playground and gardens with planters and fruit trees keep your little one busy as they exercise and enjoy the great outdoors.

Practical Skills To Foster Independence

Maestras guide your child through zipping jackets, tying shoes, handwashing, tidying up, and getting dressed and undressed for the potty. Your child’s confidence and independence soar when they learn to do things “all by themselves.”

Healthy, Nut-Free Snacks Keep Them Energized

Your little one needs good food to keep them fueled and focused; they enjoy healthy, nut-free snacks every day, build positive eating habits, and stay energized for learning and fun.

The Brightwheel™ App Keeps You Connected

You stay connected with your child’s classroom when you receive adorable photos and videos on your phone with the Brightwheel™ communication app. Classroom memos and school-wide announcements keep you in the loop.

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.

This Daycare has far exceeded my expectations. My daughter started here when she was 6 months old and now she is 10 months. I was so scared at the thought of having to leave her but seeing how happy she was there and how excited she gets when she sees her Maestras in the morning, reassured me I made the best and right choice for her. The growth I have seen in her is mind blowing. They are miracle workers and do it all with so much love. All of the staff are so caring and loving. I promise you will be so happy you chose them to watch your little one.
