SMALL CLASSES - clases pequeñas

We believe in an equal opportunity to learn. We feel that this can be achieved when class sizes are a little smaller. At Little Footprints al Futuro, there will be a maximum of 16 kids per class with and 8:1 ratio.

CLASS TIME - la hora

The school will run five days a week 8:30-11:30 and 12:30-3:30 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for children age 4.  Tuesday and Thursdays 8:30-11:00 and 12:30-3:00 for children age 3.

SPANISH BILINGUAL - español bilingue

The idea is that students will be learning concepts both in English and in Spanish. For those planning to continue into the bilingual stream, this will allow for less stress entering into the school system because students from Little Footprints al Futuro will have basic knowledge of some concepts covered at the Kindergarten level.

Meet the Teacher - profesora

Tara Ong-Padilla
Owner / Teacher

Hola y bienvenida everyone!

I am very pleased to say I am the owner of “Little Footprints al futuro Preschool Inc.” This has been a dream of mine for a very long time and I am excited that it has finally evolved. I have been a Spanish teacher for the past 16 years at Springbank Community High School, teaching Spanish as a second language. I believe in any second language but I am proud to say that Spanish is my love. I also speak French and German all of which are second languages for me and of course English being my mother tongue.
