Mariposa’s first classroom opened in 2009, establishing itself as a standard for superior early childhood education in an urban setting. Our nature-based curriculum is designed to follow the seasons and provide a developmentally appropriate and rich approach to learning, while encouraging young children to explore the world in which they live, learn, and play. Family and community engagement, as well as faculty study and reflection, bring meaningful insight and best  practices to the lively and warm classrooms. Having received a five-star rating from BrightStars in recognition of its highest quality, Mariposa is dedicated to ensuring that all children and families have access to a first-rate early childhood education.
