Schedule / Your Opinions - El Gato con Botas Spanish Immersion Preschool, Vashon Island

Hi All!

I just wanted to keep everyone up to date on the progress of El Gato con Botas.

I am planning an Open House for the end of May... sometime between the time we get the play structure up and the fence in! We are busy busy busy!!! I'm thinking of doing it on Friday, May 20th in the afternoon/evening. All of my weekends in May are booked up, otherwise I´d aim for the weekend.

I am also playing with the idea of running the preschool until 1pm instead of 12. This will obviously change the tuition and would mean that children would need to bring a sack lunch to school, but it would give us more time for art projects and more outdoor discovery time.  Any thoughts about this? I´d love to hear what you all think. Please leave me your input in the comments area below, or contact me directly:

I will keep you all updated.

The other change I have already made is that I will not be opening up on Mondays. We are members of The Vashon Maury Cooperative Preschool, and I just love it soooo much, that I can´t imagine Bella not being a part of it.

Keep the calls and ideas coming! I love hearing from you.

Summer Program Plans

Hello everyone, and welcome to El Gato con Botas, Spanish Immersion Preschool!!!  We are ECSTATIC  to be here.

At the moment I am working on getting the preschool space all set up,  the back yard all landscaped and beautiful with a new play structure, and getting all my ducks in a row! If all goes according to plan, I will be offering a summer program starting in June. This program will be an introduction to the preschool, to Spanish, and to me and is really meant for those children who are interested in carrying on with the program next year.  Like the yearly program, we will spend our time together engaged in self-guided play, music,arts and crafts projects, puppet shows and outdoor free play as well as some organized games and other activities - all in Spanish.  Summer is a great time to do this because we can take advantage of the sun (I hope!!!) The summer program will run just like the yearly program. It is not a summer camp, so the hours, tuition, and all that other jazz will be exactly the same.

I will be opening registration up around the middle of May, and it will go on a first come, first serve basis. Spaces are very limited, as I already have my daughters in the class, and will only be taking five more each day, so keep that in mind. I will post the details here when I have them! : )

I am very excited to get to know all of you, and really hope this program will be a success. I promise I will give it all I have, and I'm confident I have a lot to give.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you!
