Sofía Costa started Ficus Tree Preschool in Playa Hermosa in September 2007 with just two students. Now, the school has had to be enlarged to include an elementary school to accommodate growth in the area. Kate Reeves, a teacher with more than 20 years of experience, is becoming a partner in the school, and together they hope to have the building project completed by September 2011. Kate will be working with Sofía to organize the new Ficus Tree curriculum, which will be Montessori-based.
The school will be holding open enrollment through June. For information, visit www.ficustreecr.com or contact Sofía or Kate at 2643-3370 or email@example.com.
