Chavitos! Nature School

Nature Inspired, Spanish Immersed

Ages 2-5 and Grades K-3

Hello Wonderful Community!

We are still waiting to reschedule our Open House for phase 3.  Currently our roster is full with returning students. However, we would still love to add your family to the wait list. There usually are changes in the summer that would open up spaces.  

 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.
