New School in Beverlywood: Green Beginning Community Preschoolby Lee Zamos on February 25, 2011
Location, location, location! In addition to being the primary concern when choosing a home, it’s also incredibly important to consider location when choosing a preschool.
Green Beginning Community Preschool opened at 3047-49 Robertson Boulevard, This was especially beneficial at a time when the preschools at Canfield and Castle Heights could potentially be closing due to LAUSD budget cuts.
Founded by three experienced ex-Temple Isaiah teachers and administrators, Green Beginning opened in February 2010. Their goal was to create not only a school, but a community where educators and parents could collaborate to build a loving and unique environment.
Their philosophy includes:
- Positive Relationships
- Constructivism and Play Theory
- Multi-Intelligence Educational Approach
- Child’s Connection to the World
- Strong Home-School Bond
The facility was totally remodeled to promote an environmentally conscious community with a very homey feel. Every Friday the children celebrate Earth Day through art, drama, reading and other creative methods. Children 2-6 are welcome during the regular class hours of 9:00-12:00 or extended enrichment which goes until 2:30. The program will continue throughout the summer.
I know that I wanted a place for my kids to learn, share, work in groups and become independent learners. My husband and I understand that it’s important to feel connected to the other families and the teachers at the school you choose. I also wanted a school close to our home so I could get there quickly and as often as possible.
Green Beginning is a small, loving program which teaches toddlers and preschoolers socialization and communication skills in a supportive manner. Contact Veronica Cabello M.A. at 310-841-6100 or www.greenbeginningpreschool.com for more information and schedules.
