Señora owned and operated Little Tot Nursery School in Troy, NY from 2001-2020. As a child, Señora went to Little Tot's and then returned as a student intern while in high school. After college, Señora Marisol purchased the school and was able to implement a successful play-based curriculum that included an introduction to Spanish. Señora brought Little Tot to its 50th year in the community, before closing and relocating to the Latham, NY area.
Many students reached out to Señora when they learned Little Tot's had closed. Señora realized many of the students mentioned how they loved the Spanish lessons, remembered the Spanish songs and some even went on to get degrees in Spanish at college. This is when the idea of opening a bilingual school was born. Señora's vision for this school was that it would offer the same successful play-based preschool program as she did at Little Tot Nursery School, but also incorporate more Spanish instruction in class as well as, parent/child classes, and music classes. Señora is excited and looks forward to offering the first play based bilingual children's program in the area!
