ParaBajitos Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and production of children's events and entertainment in the city of Miami and its surroundings. By entering our page parabajitos.com you will find out everything we do in a daily basis for the little ones at home and within the community. We have articles for children like short stories, riddles, tongue twisters, curiosities and music videos; while at the same time we have sections for parenting that include advice, interviews with contemporary literature authors with themes as current as the the different family models that kids are being raised up like divorce, economy and acceptance of different conditions such as living with autism and over protection just to mention a few.
For the most part everything is in Spanish, because our purpose is that children in Florida grow up bilingual. We are really interested in children of Hispanic heritage do not lose the Spanish language and that those born here learn through art events, literature, and music, that Spanish is a fun language, and an important one that could open many doors in their future.

Theater Para Bajitos
This program is aimed to produce theater plays for and by kids.
The mission is to keep the craft of theater and performing arts alive through the montage of classic plays and the production of new contemporary plays teaching them the use of body language, organic communication and voice projection while increasing their interest in literature and classic authors.
Multicultural bilingual program
Para Bajitos has realized that living together harmoniously in Miami-Dade means
developing appreciation for the many cultures and nationalities that live here.
Obviously a large part of our targeted audiences are children who speak Spanish but, in addition,those who speak only English. We believe that starting cross cultural communication and developing intercultural appreciation starts at an early age. The students will enjoy the artistically, entertaining aspects of our events and participate in post play talk-back with the members of Para Bajitos that will help them remember the value of cross cultural communication. We believe that cross cultural education and cross cultural understanding and appreciation are vital components of children’s lives in Miami-Dade County.
Winter/Spring Children Fair at Wynwood
Our organization in the eagerness of separating kids from being all day interacting with the technology is at this point putting together a fair concept at an open space location in the Wynwood area. The program will promote the physical education while teaching and educating children with new and old games like their parents used to play when having their ages. It will also focus in improve the verbal communication among children of similar ages through games and non school activities. This program will take place all Sundays from 10am to 4pm for a three months period and it might be extended if funds are obtained. The fair will have 5 colorful tents each with a different theme. We seek to connect our children with artt and disconnect for some time, from the technological reality in which we live
