Our Early Education Programs serve over 500 children to promote higher education among the Latino community and allow families to see continued post-secondary education as a viable possibility. We offer instruction designed to ensure students become independent learners while supporting English language mastery and the continued development of their native language.

Our early education programs are based on Finnish education principles that highlight collaboration and ethics, led by Georgia-certified teachers in a student-led environment, which includes STEAM practices (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) under the umbrella of both Play and Project Based Learning curriculums.

Additionally, teachers cover Georgia standards for Early Childhood (GELDS) and Elementary (GSE). Teachers implement the SEE (Social, Emotional, and Ethical) Learning Curriculum developed at Emory University. The combination Play Based and Project Based Learning encourages students to engage with the world around them, while SEE Learning empowers students to engage ethically as part of a global community and provides educators with the tools to support students’ well-being.

Summer Educational Program

For students 3 years old to 3rd grade
Full Day Program, 5 weeks from June – July

During our summer program, preschool to 3rd-grade students engage in a cross-curricular approach to learning. Students can apply skills learned via school instruction or everyday life to develop a class project; they also engage in Play-Based Learning which allows students to actively learn while cultivating “innovative minds capable of discovery.”

Participating in the summer program helps combat summer learning loss. It prepares students to engage meaningfully in learning, whether in school or at home.

Locations: Sandy Springs, Roswell, Hapeville, Lilburn, Chamblee, and Forest Park.

Registrations for Summer 2024 will be open in January 2024 – keep up with Los Niños Primero on social media for all the latest updates!


Saturday School

For students 3 years to 3rd grade
Bi-monthly weekly program August-April

Our half-day Saturday School Program is designed to meaningfully engage students in fun activities that foster curiosity and a love for learning. The STEAM approach supports the students’ development by providing access to science, math, art, and other methods to guide student inquiry. Instruction is guided by Georgia Standards for Early Learning and Development (GELDS) and Georgia Standard of Excellence (GSE).

Art, music and yoga are also key components of our holistic curriculum.

Location: 471 Mount Vernon HWY NE, Sandy Springs, GA 30328.


Early Literacy Program

For students 4 to 5 years old ~ Twice a week September – April

The Early Literacy Program helps improve family literacy by inviting parents into the classroom and encouraging them to invest early in a productive academic relationship with their children.

This bi-lingual, intergenerational program helps bridge the gap between low-income Latino students and students with access to rich learning experiences. We do this by encouraging parents to engage meaningfully in settings designed to promote learning. Guided by a teacher, parents learn how to provide these meaningful experiences at home.
