Growth. Comunidad. Jugar. Family.
Our mission is to provide quality childcare and preschool bilingual education that promotes the healthy growth of the whole child: mind, body, and spirit. At Little Robles, we believe that each child is unique and deserves access to quality education that not only prepares them for their academic future, but also prepares them to be healthy, whole-hearted, and active members of their community.
At Little Robles, we believe that play is vital to a child's development. It is how they learn to socialize, communicate, and take calculated risks. It is also how children heal from adversity and process difficult situations or feelings they are experiencing. Our program will help children to use play to learn, explore their environments, and develop into well-rounded community members.
Our name, Little Robles, comes from the Spanish word "roble" which means oak tree. Like the strong and resilient oak tree, Little Robles strives to promote children’s inner power and strength to help them overcome challenges, become more independent, and be prepared for their entrance into kindergarten. Children will be ready to continue their lifelong love for learning with the solid social-emotional and academic foundation that Little Robles provides.

Parent involvement is a core value at Little Robles. Parents are invited to spend time with us, see what their children are learning, and to share with us what is important to their families.
Little Robles knows that supporting children in our community means also supporting parents during what may be the most complex and trying time in their child’s development.
We also offer parenting workshops, support groups, and mental health support from an in-house therapist.
Although not required, parents are welcomed to volunteer for projects and field trips or lead us in celebrations that are special to their family.
We share daily activity reports with parents to let them know what has happened during school each day. We also send a weekly digest of pictures for each child and a monthly newsletter with all of the information about what we've been learning at school.
Parents are encouraged to let the staff know of family situations and activities that may impact their child's behavior at school.
Little Robles also offers special workshops throughout the school year that focus on strengthening the parent/child relationship and managing behaviors.
Social Emotional Learning
At Little Robles we know that kindergarten readiness begins with a solid social emotional foundation.
Little Robles' director is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist that has put social emotional learning at the forefront of everything we do at Little Robles.
Children learn how to express all of their big feelings, cooperate with one another during difficult interactions, and use different techniques to self-regulate. We do this through providing words for the emotions we see, modeling appropriate ways to express feelings and needs, and using mindfulness techniques throughout the day.
