Our Mission...

BAHIA provides familias with a nurturing, dual language, and learning community where children emerge as engaged contributors to a global society.


Our Vision

 A just world that embraces racial, cultural and linguistic diversity.


Our Values



Honoring intergenerational knowledge and wisdom, we partner with our familias to deliver program activities that enable children to reach their developmental potential.

Diverse Cultural Heritage:

Our programs reflect traditions and practices that honor the multiple identities of our familias.


Our educators are committed to continual learning and professional growth to achieve high quality curriculum and programming.


We foster a child’s positive self-image by providing spaces where all children and their familias feel welcomed, and experience a sense of belonging.


We advocate in support of familias who aspire to achieve good health and well-being in the face of continual institutional barriers.
