Mi Escuelita has developed a specialized curriculum designed to meet the needs of low income children whose native language is not English. This scientifically based curriculum provides language intervention along with daily math, science, reading, music and art activities. Mi Escuelita uses a combination of two leading curriculums (Scholastic’s Building Language for Literacy and Scholastic’s Early Childhood Curriculum) combined with new practices geared toward second language learners. This curriculum coupled with the parental and family literacy components gives children an even stronger basic skill set before they enter the formal educational environment.
