Corazón is a home-based preschool tucked in a quiet South Austin neighborhood, serving children ages 3.5 to 5. The indoor space is set up as an invitation to play in various corners of the child’s world – creating, building, observing, pretending, writing, reading, singing, and laughing are all a big part of the day. The outdoor classroom and nature walks give children the opportunity to move, climb, run, hunt for snails, watch the clouds, get messy and keep their bodies in tune with the natural world. The curriculum at Corazón Neighborhood Preschool is Reggio Emilia inspired with a focus on play and social emotional learning. Lead Teacher, Lulu, is certified in Children’s Yoga & Mindfulness. Concepts of early math and early literacy in the English language are introduced through play and explored alongside Spanish and American Sign Language. Scheduling is flexible at 2, 3, or 5 days a week. Tours are ongoing and available by request. Located near Slaughter & Manchaca in South Austin.
