Come from kindness, learn through play

10th Street cultivates and grows kind, empathic, intellectually curious, intrinsically motivated serious learners who are willing to take learning risks in order to deepen their understanding and who believe in the beauty of doing ones personal best.
When you look at the sweet faces of the children and grownups in our school you will see our mission in action. Their faces are our mirror onto the world. Our international appeal is wide and far and our diversity percentage is 67 %. We offer payment plans that fit your needs. Talk with us about what you need. 310-458-4088.

We begin each year by building a solid foundation of caring grownups (parents and teachers) who share a generosity of spirit and kinship; who embrace joining together to learn, know and grow oneself and one another and who are committed to bringing and applying that knowledge to the world outside the Red Door.

Meaningful Play

10th Street Preschool is founded on the profound belief that young children learn best when allowed to engage in meaningful play in mixed-age groupings.

We build collaborative partnerships with parents and grandparents while providing parent education programs in a social, relaxed and intimate setting.



Our community is a combination of children, parents, teachers, alumni, grandparents, professionals, consultants and friends dedicated to providing support to our children and our community both inside and outside of our Red Door.

Cindy Teaching

Our Philosophy

10th Street Preschool is dedicated to helping children make two milestone transitions, first from their home to their school, and then, from toddler to kindergarten.

Children learn best when they are engaged in meaningful, mixed-age play. Whether in the sandbox, pretend room, art bungalow, or play yard the girls and boys of 10th Street will achieve cognitive, physical, and psychosocial well-being.

We work closely with parents in our intimate setting because we believe parents are the real experts and an integral part of our team to help grow our children.

After 10th Street

Cindy’s dedication to education does not stop once 10th Street families graduate. Working closely with families to ensure a good match for continuing a child’s journey is part of our successful history of strong placement in private schools throughout Los Angeles, not only on the westside. Families routinely receive invitations to join the first and/or second school of their choice.
