Linda Fabel Duque a.k.a. Lita, Director
Escuelita de Lita is the place where kids play, create, and learn in Spanish through immersion in a kaleidoscope of games, stories, dramatizations, song, dance, and experiences with arts, crafts, and physical activities-- all in Spanish! At Escuelita de Lita, learning Spanish is natural, communicative, and always fun!
Since young children are active, creative constructors of meaning rather than passive receivers of vocabulary and information, all lessons are designed to be engaging, purposeful, and age-appropriate. The hands-on thematic content instruction is interwoven with rich Hispanic social and cultural contexts. When ready, holistic reading and writing experiences seamlessly accompany the development of oral language.
It's what Decatur kids are asking for!

OPTIONAL EXTENDED SCHEDULE (3:30 to 5pm)

This new schedule is a win-win situation that will provide the Escuelita kids 50% more contact time to learn and practice Spanish while giving parents a more solid block of time to exercise, grocery shop, or any other activity.
The activities during this 30-minute space will be more personalized and interactive for the kids who attend,
This is a convenient drop-off time for the F.AVE kids as well.
