Since 1991 West Hollywood Children’s Academy has been providing extraordinary early childhood educational program for children 2-6 years old.  Our center is a place where children, teachers, parents, and community members come together as a family  to create a trusted, gentle, nurturing, and safe environment where children can play, learn, laugh, discover, and grow. 

Our Toddler, Preschool, and full-time Pre-K/K programs nurture the whole child in all areas of development: social, emotional, cognitive, intellectual, and physical.

  • We believe that children are born with a sense of wonder. We encourage children to think, reason, question, experiment, makes choices, develop social and practical skills, become independent, and to love learning. To us, your CHILD is a unique individual, equipped with his own plan of development, and his own methods and terms of mastering surroundings.
  • West Hollywood Children’s Academy’s program is designed around the widely respected theories of J. Piaget and L. Vygotsky. Piaget believed that young children learn best through a hands on active experience.  Vygotsky’s sociolcultural theory of human learning describes learning as a social process and social interactions as fundamental for early childhood development.  We are also inspired by Montessori pedagogy.
  • Our curriculum uniquely weaves  key academic skills into hands-on projects, activities, and games. STEAM curriculum encourages future-forward skills. It is fun and has little to do with memorizing without understanding. We support creative expression, literacy, music, and more. Our preschoolers start reading!
  • Children explore the world through carefully designed thematic units. Our themes are design to capture the interest and imagination of young minds.  Our themes include:  weather and calendar, learning about feelings, nutrition, teamwork, gratitude, sharing and giving, modes of transportation, cultural diversity, the environment, insect & animals, life cycles, preschool geography and astronomy, Holidays, and special days in life like graduating from Preschool and Kindergarten ! These themes help children know who they are, appreciate their community, their environment, their history, and the world at large, become well-rounded individuals, and make healthy life choices.

We are family owned and operated. We make sure that your child has everything they need to succeed. Not just strong early childhood educational foundation but an all-inclusive touch. Providing from organic and nutritious meals to blankets at nap time. We are your child’s cozy home away from home.
