Ages 2-5
Grades K-5

Invitation only Open House
End of March
If you are interested in enrolling your children please send us an email. Each spring, after all currently-enrolled families get first choice of available spots for the following year, we hold our annual March Open House to give interested families a chance to see the school site, get their questions answered and meet our teachers. Only families on our Early Notification List are invited to the Open House. 

What we offer...

Chavitos means children in Spanish. We are a bilingual nature immersion school located in Tacoma, Washington on almost an acre of native land. 

As an entirely outdoor education program, we are committed to 100% outdoor nature immersion, interest-led flow learning, emergent curriculum, and inquiry-based teaching. 
Our approach is child-driven and based on discovery rather than a set curriculum.

Our mission is to provide a high quality early childhood environment that meets preschoolers' needs, while inspiring them to love nature and learn Spanish. We serve students ages 2 to 5, from either 8:30-11:30 five days a week and 1:00-3:00 on Wednesdays.

At  Chavitos Nature School, our program combines the best of hands-on outdoor and nature education with Montessori teaching methods and Spanish instruction with a native speaker to help prepare your child for kindergarten and the life beyond.
