7:30am – 4:30pm


Choosing a program for the early care and education of your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent, and one that can have a profound impact on your child’s future! El Mundo de Niños is much more than a bilingual early learning center. We are a community of bilingual families and educators who come together to share our love of language, discovery and play with our children so that they develop linguistic connections, strong relationships and the self determination to explore and discover the world around them.
We provide open ended, minimally structured materials and environments, where adults step back and provide the children with ample time and space to become fully engaged in a play world that belongs to them!


We foster the natural development of Spanish language skills and bilingualism by creating an environment where children have intrinsic motivation for using language through communicating with teachers, friends and family.


We strive to create a community of bilingual families who feel at home at our Center and participate in their child’s language and cultural early childhood learning experience.



Kate Woodford has been teaching my child for 3 years. She is a compassionate teacher, always looking for ways to enhance play based learning. She is patient and kind. We chose not to send our son to 4K and have him stay at La Casita Azul because the learning opportunities that she offered were so great. We are a primarily English speaking family, and my now 5 year old child has excellent Spanish speaking skills due to what he has learned during his time with Kate. My son will be school age next year, otherwise we would for sure enroll him in El Mundo de Ninos! I always felt safe sending my son to her care. I would recommend Kate to anyone.read more

Kate Woodford is a talented and inspiring teacher. Her desire to learn and grow and serve our young children by offering them the finest education she can has lead her to achieve a masters degree in bi-lingual education. As she continued to follow her curiosity and learn how to meet the young child in the most developmentally appropriate way she began studying and working with the child centered educational philosophy Anji Play. Her original program is ideal for the young child. They are given the freedom to play, create, and follow their imagination in a safe and loving environment. They have a strong daily rhythm that includes long periods of time outdoors where children are free to run, climb, and explore. My daughter spent a year with Ms. Kate when she was 2 years old. When she entered the program she spoke only English and by the end of the year she could understand everything that was spoken in Spanish and could also speak some Spanish. We feel grateful that our family had the opportunity to be a part of this program.read more

Mientras cuidaba de nuestros hijos, Maestra Kate era una extensión de nuestra familia. No sólo una maestra, se relaciona con los niños con cariño, alegría y amor y los trata como los seres únicos y preciosos que son. Enfatiza la comunicación auténtica y la colaboración con y entre los pequeños, dejándoles el espacio necesario para conocer y vivir sus grandes emociones y grandes imaginaciones. Se destacaba una experiencia diseñada con los niños al corazón.read more

El Mundo de Niños will be implementing the Anji Play philosophy as our core curriculum. We firmly believe in children’s natural curiosity and innate desire to learn and explore through play. We believe in the importance of children spending time outdoors and among nature and because of this we have prioritized our outdoor environment and green space for the children to have the experience of exploring and interacting with the natural world every day!
