"Creating connections between nature and the child"

Twin Cities Nature Based Program
At Círculo de Amigos our philosophy is to ensure that our kids learn through nature, by being outdoors daily. This is a fundamental component for creating connections between children and nature.

Nature instills in humans a sense of harmony and relaxation. It exposes us to living things as it promotes curiosity and exploration. With teacher guidance, children can learn about being conscious and respecting living things. Positive self-esteem is able to thrive outdoors because mother nature doesn’t judge people. 
Spanish & Culture Immersion
At Círculo, we have a full Spanish immersion program. All the activities and lessons are carried out in this language and scaffolding strategies are implemented to help children learn the language naturally. 

Our teachers are fluent Spanish speakers and knowledgeable of the Latino cultures. More than learning a language, we want to expose children to the rich traditions, celebrations, and customs that encompass this heritage. The learning material is mostly in Spanish and places an emphasis on celebrating diversity.
Kindergarten Readiness
Special focus is given to our Pre-k Readiness program that is specially designed to stimulate curiosity, excitement in learning, creating positive self-esteem and respect for others. Our commitment is for Círculo students to begin kindergarten with the academic foundations they need to have a head start and be emotionally ready.

Our teachers engage in writing, reading, numerical problems, dramatic play, and many other activities to help them gain these important skills that are critical in kindergarten as well as providing a more structured educational environment.
Extracurricular Activities
Meditation - We offer meditation classes to teach children the practice of breathing techniques, relaxation, finding inner peace, and much more. This is done through experienced and knowledgeable guides whom adapt the exercises according to children’s abilities.

Dance - To celebrate the distinctiveness of many cultures around the world, many traditional dances are taught to children from all over the world. Seeing the unique and beautiful dance wardrobes, learning the steps to a dance and hearing the vibrant sounds makes children enjoy learning dance.

Music - Once a week, we are privileged to have a musician come and teach our children a variety of songs and melodies.  Students are supported in exploring musical notes, instruments, songs, and vocalization of many children’s songs.

Art - During these lessons, children work with many materials to create works of art and crafts. Some of the materials they work with include clay, paint, recycled items, and create mosaics with tile and stones.

Yoga - Offered at our center to demonstrate the physical disciplines of postures and breathing, yoga increases endurance, strength and flexibility. It also relieves stiffness, tones the body, reduces mental stress and leads to deep relaxation. We offer this class to provide children strategies to self-sooth and channel their emotions.

Field Trips - We provide a variety of educational field trips because these provide important learning opportunities in the real world; this is a shared social experience that provides students the experience to encounter and explore novel things in an authentic setting, lasting impact on their education, and increased intellectual curiosity and interest in and out of school.
