To achieve the fundamental development of children through an exclusive, English centered, learning experience with qualified teachers and a modern and dynamic program which efficiently develops our students’ skills and abilities.


Children acquire the language through immersion

Our mission is to encourage all children to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate, educational experiences where they can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment. Through an English centered curriculum we strive to make the most of our students learning ability an early age. Our immersion program enables children to acquire the English language appropriately, with the correct pronunciation and fluidity while developing their motor, cognitive, creative, and social-emotional skills.


We inspire curiosity, independence and a life-long love of learning to help our children become contributing members of our community and the world. We aim to achieve concrete objectives in all of our students, focusing on each child’s individual needs and abilities. 


We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our programs provide settings that recognize children’s varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles.

We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our educational-based, child centered program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and language areas for the total development of the child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self-image.

 LITTLE MINDS provides experiences that develop in children a great love of learning. Our priority is to offer our students the attention, care, and love they need. 


At LITTLE MINDS we work to provide a safe, stimulating and positive environment that promotes the physical, emotional, cognitive, creative and social development of each of our students. That is why we carefully select our teachers and staff making sure they have true vocation and are qualified to provide our kids with the best attention and learning experience.


Teacher Ali founded Little Minds in 2012, following her inherent passion for educating young children. Later that year, Teacher Vivi joined Little Minds, and in 2014 she became sub director and business partner. Ali and Vivi, who are childhood friends, work full time at their center. 


“This is our passion and vocation since we were kids. Children are our daily inspiration. We are here every day and know every child´s name, interests, and progress. We focus on offering each child, the attention, care and love they deserve while providing them routines and structure that will enhance the developmental skills they need for success in school and life.”
