2018 / 2019 Classes

Students at Pepitas are exposed regularly to a wide variety of individual and collaborative art projects; science experiments and math exploration; literacy through stories, songs, and early reading and writing skills; weekly activities such as yoga and chapel; outside adventures on the playground and in our garden; snack time where we take time to replenish our energy, enjoy each other, and discuss our weekly theme; circle time where we advance the calendar, discuss la clima, sing songs, and read books; and music time where we sing, dance, and play instruments. And of course, we focus on Spanish and English throughout the day. We don’t have a designated Spanish time. We speak and sing Spanish and English all day! As the year progresses, we speak more and more Spanish – you’ll be amazed how fast your child will pick it up! Pepitas is a wonderful place to introduce your child to school – we are dedicated to making learning joyful! You can see a little bit about what we’re up to on our Facebook page.

Our holidays and closures are consistent with Shoreline Schools.

Pepitas Preschool admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
