Spanish Learning Castle

About US


SLC is local family owned and operated, her owner and Director Ani Marin, has been working with children as a Spanish Teacher for over 15 years. She taught Spanish to elementary school children in Minneapolis and St Paul school district.


In 2013 she started a Mommy and Me Spanish Program tailored for early stimulation of 6 to 18 month old children.  She was inspired by her baby daughter as she enjoyed playing with and singing to her in Spanish. She truly cherished those memorable moments that she spent with her and decided to spread this joy to others by creating Spanish Learning Castle in 2014.


The SLC logo was created by Ani´s Nephew AJ (Anthony James) Marin in 2011 when he was 5 years old.


Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on experiences. The Spanish environment surrounding our activities enables your child to learn Spanish at the same time as practicing early childhood educational concepts like following instructions, literacy, art, math and science. The curriculum also incorporates group activities to reinforce the fun of the Spanish language in songs, movement, yoga and games. Classes include outdoor activities in our 1/2 acre backyard.


A perfect balance of nurturing, playtime, and learning each day.

Ms. Ani is SLC's owner and Co-Director.


AJ is the creator of the beautiful SLC logo.
