Papalotes is an alternative education program in Puerto Escondido and its teachings are inspired by the Waldorf philosophy for education. Our goal is to offer a rich academic program and educate our children to grow into healthy, happy and balanced individuals, conscious of what they want, and how to fulfill it.
The initiative was born in 2012, founded by a collective of parents as an educational alternative for the children of our town. Being a community project, the mothers and fathers of the children are an integral part of the school's constant financial and community development. Currently we offer kindergarten (age 3 to 6) and elementary grades one through five (age 7 to 11).
