 An introduction

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 childhood environment that meets preschoolers' and elementary schoolers needs, while inspiring them to love nature and learn Spanish. We serve students ages 2 to 5, from either 8:30-11:30 Monday-Friday and 1:00-4:00 on Monday and Friday. We service our elementary aged children 4-9 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 1:00-4:00. 

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