Voted Best Specialty Camp 2022! | Austin Family Magazine

Thank you Austin Families for choosing us as the Best Specialty Camp! Although our main focus is teaching our students Spanish, we do our best to have fun by learning through science, games, dance, music, cooking, art, Montessori lessons and much more. We always focus our camps environmental awareness and kindness which we feel students truly enjoy.

Little Seed Library

Participate in our newest venture for the community! In collaboration with Upbring School of Arts & Science, Mariposas is now sponsoring a Little Seed Library at our office/summer camp location. The Seed Library contains seeds and information about growing food for yourself and community. 

It works just like a Little Book Library-  take a pack, leave a pack system.  These “libraries”  exist to encourage food sharing and gardening in communities and families. 

Start to grow at 3501 Red River.

Voted Best of Austin 2021! | The Austin Chronicle

We are grateful for the Austin Community voting us Best in Online Tutoring and Children’s Education. In the last year, we had to pivot our in person curriculum to online virtual learning by hosting zoom classes and on demand (pre recorded) classes. Both were a success and we were able to keep our students on their Spanish learning goals. ¡Gracias familias y escuelas!

Mariposas on Sidewalk Talk - Sawyer Blog

Learning a second language as a kid is exciting! They’re discovering other cultures, practicing new traditions, and building their language skills through songs, games, and stories. Picking up vocabulary and language foundations comes easy; and unknowingly, kids are getting a big cognitive boost in brain development through being bilingual.

It can be intimidating as a parent supporting your child in a foreign language. Are you a monolingual parent trying to raise a bilingual child? A bilingual parent helping your kids navigate learning a language foreign to you? Don’t stress!
