Primeros Pasos is overjoyed to have cared for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in our nurturing Spanish immersion program for 5 years now! We know that our best success lies in the wonderful relationships we have developed with the children in our care, and with their families! We thank them for their trust: we have appreciated caring for 8 sets of siblings (and counting! 3 more are scheduled to join us); we appreciate their referrals to their friends; and we appreciate their positive testimonials on Yelp and other websites.
It has long been difficult to respond to the volume of inquiries that we receive. We give priority to siblings and to referrals, and as a small school of 12-14 children, we rarely have openings for admission to our program. As we’d like to help as many families as possible with our play-based, caring, Spanish immersion program, we are developing a second location!
We will retain our current location open in Glen Park, and we are working to open our second location at the Silver Park condominium complex on the corner of Bayshore and Silver in the Fall of 2018. As of this writing, we are projecting an October opening date. Given San Francisco approvals and permits, as well as State licensing processes, there are many factors at play. We will publish a firm opening date as soon as it is available, which we project to be mid-summer.
We welcome you to join us on May 31 for our “Imagine” event Open House at the new Silver Park campus. We will be on hand to guide you on a tour of the new spaces from 5:30 – 6 p.m., then to present information about our program and answer your questions from 6 – 6:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served, so please RSVP here so we may prepare accordingly!
Interest forms will be available at the event and we will track them in the order received, with no obligation. You will receive periodic updates from us as the construction progresses.
Once we have a firm opening date available, which we project to have by mid-summer, we will meet with families to further answer questions and confirm interest. At that time, we will request a deposit to hold your spot in the charter Centro Primeros Pasos class of 2018 – 19! If at that time your family chooses another care option, we look forward to seeing you in the community.
We look forward to meeting you at our May 31 Open House: “Imagine!”
