The Crayon Box was founded in 2003 by Adriana Razo, an early childhood educator who envisioned a school where all children were exposed to the Spanish language. For some it means the continuity of a language spoken at home, and for others it means the exposure and daily use of a new language, during a crucial time of development when children are open to new experiences and practice the language without fear.
In September of 2005, the Crayon Box moved into its present facility in San Francisco. This location includes six spacious classrooms, administrative offices, a large, fenced playground with playstructure, as well as additional outdoor classroom spaces.
Adriana's goal continues to be to offer a diverse community that encourages children to appreciate and learn about other cultures as well as their own, providing a school setting where children are excited about learning and look forward to a lifelong joy of learning.
