Intiwasi offers a 100% Spanish immersion preschool program for children in the Los Angeles area. Our program accepts kids ages 24 months to 5 years old. Our approach to education borrows from educational philosophies including Montessori, Reggio, and Project-Based Learning, placing high emphasis on Spanish language acquisition.
We work with multi-level classrooms through stations of exploration. Each station has different levels allowing children to learn at their own pace and allows children to explore a field of study such as math, art, language, and science through hands-on activities. During station time, children have the opportunity to choose where to work and rotate through different stations at their own pace and lead by their own curiosity, forming their independence and freedom of choice.
Our preschool program follows a STEAM curriculum that places high emphasis on arts and science. Music, art, sports, and dance are embedded into our school day allowing children to express themselves kinesthetically and visually.
All of our students participate in yoga and gardening twice a week. In yoga class, children learn to control their bodies, understand concepts of balance, and meditation. While gardening, children get to explore the outdoors, see how food grows, and try new flavors.
At Intiwasi, we care about our Los Angeles community, and most importantly our environment. We are committed to teaching our children how to love our planet and the principles of 'reduce, re-use, and recycle'. Our goal is to raise caring, inquisitive, responsible individuals with a global perspective.
More than anything, Intiwasi is a place created with love, in which we see each and every one of our students as individuals. We cherish our differences and celebrate our similarities. At Intiwasi, we create a space of love and tolerance meant to allow each of our students to develop in a caring and loving environment.
Our Preschool offers a variety of schedules including a half-day schedule perfect for transitioning your child to our Preschool. Classes are specially developed to help children get their feet wet with preschool while exposing them to Spanish through diverse activities such as music, movement, and art.
This schedule is recommended for children between the ages of 2 - 3.5 years who are not yet ready for a full schedule but want the opportunity to smoothly transition to preschool. Once in our transition program, students are introduced to the basics of preschool life through fun activities and a variety of stations including gardening, yoga, music, art, and lots of play!
