Parent Testimonials

We have had a great experience with Alma Flor Ada. The staff is kind, and have been great throughout our child’s transition to the school. They communicate with us regularly and I love seeing the smiles from our son and hearing about his day. We are so excited that our child gets the opportunity to learn Spanish and look forward to watching him learn and grow with the Alma Flor Ada team!

“En muy poco tiempo Alma Flor Ada Supo ganarse un lugar en nuestros corazones. Llevamos a Emma todos los con la tranquilidad de que va a ser cuidada, querida y atendida, en un entorno de aprendizaje variado y constante. La energía del staff es muy positiva. La mejor prueba de esto es la felicidad con la que nuestra hija va a Alma Flor Ada todos los días. Gracias!!”

AFA has been such a great experience for my 4 year olds! The teachers have been so welcoming and loving. After only a month they are counting in Spanish and teaching me so much. It has been so fun to watch their brains be stimulated and see them flourish in ways I didn’t expect. The school and staff are doing a great job of keeping everything clean and everyone healthy. I’m so pleased with our decision to attend Alma Flor Ada!

We have two children at Alma Flor Ada, our daughter is in pre-school and our son is in kindergarten, and we could not be happier with the experience they are getting. They look forward to going to school every morning and come home happy. Our son is always excited to show off the new vocabulary he learned and has started using it around the house as much as he can. We can overhear our daughter singing to herself in her room in Spanish at night (she’s supposed to be sleeping, but we take what we can get!) The staff has been wonderful and the facility is amazing, I would fully recommend Alma Flor Ada to anyone.

We moved to Minnesota from Puerto Rico 2 years ago, one of the things that worried me the most is not having my children experience our culture. It was such a breath of fresh air when we met with the team at AFA, I felt like I was with friends within 5 minutes. Our son started attending the first day they opened and he has loved it. His teachers have been the best and they are so loving, he comes home so happy every day. I love seeing how even though he is growing far away where he was born, he gets to spend time learning about not only the island but also all the other amazing countries. Also he will be able to communicate with his grandparents which is the greatest thing for me! I am so excited to keep building our community around AFA, and looking forward to all the experiences we get to share within their walls.

Our twins Hank and Blair (4years) attend the pre-K program here at Alma Flor Ada. The experience our children have had at AFA thus far has been incredible. The facilities are brand new and each class room is filled with all the latest learning tools/curriculum needed in today’s education. The curriculum is structured but the teachers also understand the independent/variety and fun needed for kids to thrive in this environment.

The staff loves on our children every single day we bring them to school and pays close attention to each child’s individual learning needs. The teachers use technology in the classroom that allows communication throughout the day with each parent. Videos, pictures, and messages are sent out throughout the day updating parents on how their child’s day is taking shape. The transition for our 4 year olds from at being home every day, to school 5 days a week was initially very stressful for us as parents and our children. Afa has helped us through that transition and we are so happy we made the decision to attend this amazing school.

We could not have asked for a better experience for our daughter! While becoming bilingual was where this adventure started, we quickly found out how much more Alma Flor Ada provided for our family! The people – thoughtful, caring and professional, the facility – inviting, safe and clean, and the community – family fun events, great parents, and lifelong friends! Thank you for providing a program that has built a strong foundation for her future!

Best place ever! I have three children and my youngest (3 years) has been at AFA for just over one year. I’ve had kids in daycare/early preschool for 9 years and AFA is my absolute favorite experience to date. Not only can my 3yo understand conversational Spanish spoken by native Spanish-speakers, she has also learned about food, traditions, and cultures of many Latino countries. However, even if AFA were not a Spanish immersion program; I would opt to take my daughter there over any other program. The care and love she gets at AFA is amazing. Every teacher I’ve encountered treats every child as their own. I tell everyone who will listen how amazing this program is!

We had the best experience here. I feel as though my child got a head start in her education and is more advanced due to starting here. The staff was so friendly and always have family involvement. We will miss the wonderful environment they created.

My daughter has attended this center for 3 years and our experience has been nothing short of amazing! The staff is very attentive, caring, and makes us feel like family. She has learned lots of Spanish and uses it in her daily vocabulary. I would recommend anyone looking for care for their children to attend Alma Flor Ada!

Best decision we made for our kids! AFA is a wonderful learning environment for our little ones!

The staff are more than just a “teacher” or “provider” they are like family!! They go out of their way, going above and beyond what is required of them, making the kids feel welcome. They even message you about how they are feeling on a day they are out sick… or make a guest appearance at their birthday party… find a another preschool that does that…

The food is excellent, healthy, and the kiddos seem to love it… can I get on the meal plan too? They do art nearly daily, and we love getting little projects sent home to put on the walls and fridge, my boys are always excited to show us what they made.

Now, the Spanish Immersion brings them to a new level! I never had thought about Immersion starting so young, but I love and see all the benefits of it now. The kiddos come out wanting to tell me a new word or phrase they learned (sometimes ‘Toddler Spanglish’ is hard to understand) and we are always excited to learn with them.

We are not a Spanish speaking household, however we love the idea of the doors that will be opened up for a bilingual child as they grow and continue to learn not only the language but also the cultures of different parts of the world.

HIGHLY recommend touring here as an option for your little humans.
