This is a full year after the original post was made and Mi Escuelita has once again a few openings. My son has been a student at Mi Escuelita since last October and we are delighted with the school. This is a fantastic resource for parents who are interested in introducing Spanish into their kids' life at an early age. Especially now, with the two new Spanish Immersion Programs at Encinal and Laurel. Dalila, the school director, is not only very knowledgeable but also very patient and attentive with the kids. This is a fantastic way to improve our kids chances to get into the public immersion programs when they get to kindergarten!

Exposure to a second language early in life is a wonderful thing, and should be encouraged. However, the Menlo Park district's Spanish bilingual program uses a lottery system to select students.

Having early exposure to Spanish may improve the speed with which a child picks up Spanish in the classroom, but it's not going to improve his or her chances of getting into the program.
