Welcome to Las Mañanitas!


Our home, located in San Francisco's historic Westwood Park Neighborhood, provides the cozy setting for our Spanish Immersion program for preschoolers (ages two years nine months to five years). Currently in our ninth year, Las Mañanitas is designed to encourage Spanish-speaking preschoolers to further develop their primary language while welcoming English- speaking preschoolers into a beautiful new language experience.

We offer a three-day (Mon/Tues/Wed) or two-day (Th/Fri) program option from 8:50am to 12:50pm (organic snack and hot lunch included). We also offer five-day (MTWThF) placements for children who are four years old by December 1, 2016. Each program brings together a community of twelve children and three teachers. Our academic year begins in late August and ends in late May. We are a Preschool for All site and additional scholarships are also available.

In 2015 the Las Mañanitas teaching team was awarded the First 5 Excellence in Teaching Award.
