At Mi Mundo de Colores, we make sure each child gets special attention and an equal opportunity to be enriched with textures, sounds, sights, emotional intelligence, culture, body movement, and lots of smiles.
Take a look at all the different activities we do - and there are many more!
We throw parties for the children to celebrate their birthdays. To prepare, we start a week or so in advance by making the piñatas from scratch. All the kids get to help with the paper maché balloon, then when it's time to celebrate, they all get to take turns hitting the piñata.

De A. G.:
My daughter started with Vilma (Susi’s sister) and Susi when my daughter was 16 months. It was not easy for either of us but Vilma and Susi took such good care of her right from day one. Their genuine love for her made me feel like leaving her with them was more like something special that I could do for her, rather than just a safe place to spend the hours that I was working. At that age I wanted a safe, nurturing environment that she would be happy to go to. They gave her that and so much more. As she grew, our needs expanded. Both Vilma and Susi are just as good with babies and toddlers as they are with preschoolers. Their energy and patience are boundless and they are highly skilled educators that have taught my daughter so much. She speaks Spanish and has been exposed to art and dance and music. She is now almost 5 and she still spends a few afternoons a week with them. We are so lucky to have found them. I can not recommend Vilma and Susi enough.
De J. T.:
Susi is an AMAZING teacher. My daughter, has been with her for almost 2 years now and she has given her both stability and joy. She taught her to actually speak Spanish, unlike other programs out there. It was so important to me for her to learn Spanish, as I am a high school Spanish teacher. She has learned so many skills from Susi, such as negotiating behavior in difficult situations with friends, language, socio-emotional, how to deal with frustration, communicate feelings, etc. Susi communicates regularly with parents about skills the kids can work on outside of school time. She has taught her about the seasons, weather, colors, shapes, numbers, letters, emotions, and much more. I feel so confident leaving my daughter with Susi and I can’t wait to have my second daughter attend Mi Mundo de Colores!
