About Us

The Language Grove Community Preschool is a unique Spanish Immersion, Reggio inspired, organic, and eco-friendly preschool & toddler center located in North Hills, California. Children in our school are seen as being fully competent and capable of learning about the world around them through discovery and investigation. At the Language Grove, teachers listen to the children’s interests and questions and provide tools and materials to help the children follow their investigations.The teachers learn with the children as they explore the environment of the school and neighborhood community.

The environment in the school is beautiful, homelike, and stimulating to children’s curiosity and learning. Materials and natural elements are displayed beautifully and thoughtfully throughout the environment. Children’s work is given value and importance through documentation and display. The environment conveys the clear sense that children and their work are valued and appreciated. Our students come from a diverse population where each child brings his or her distinct heritage, direct experience, and talents to the learning environment. Our classrooms foster collaboration and children learn with and from one another. We offer full and part-time programs year round from August to July. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am - 6:00pm and Saturdays & Sundays from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm for other programs.

We Are Proud To Be Green

We believe that children’s growing bodies, minds, and spirits require nourishing foods, free of pesticides.  We try our best to serve as many organic products as possible, including fruits and vegetables from our own garden.  Children are given the opportunity to be surrounded with positive food choices and appreciate that their decisions, including what they eat, have an impact on our planet.  We strive for a strong school community where children can participate in many earth friendly activities such as, gardening, eco-friendly arts and crafts, recycling, etc. In addition, our school is very proud to use only natural, non-toxic cleaners to clean and disinfect furniture and toys.

  • Ms. Yessy

    Director

    Hello Everyone. It is a great please to be a part of The Language Grove Community Preschool. The idea for the formation of this beautiful school was born from the fact that as a mother I was unable to find a preschool for my 2 1/2 year old daughter, Isabel, where I felt her needs and mine were being met.

  • Ms. Gloria

    Being part of the Early Education world has been a calling that I am grateful to be part of. I strongly believe in the community that a school builds with families. As a mother of two rambunctious boys I know the importance and the impact an adult has on a child's development. Seeing children meeting milestones, laughing, and learning alongside them has and continues to be a privilege.
