Welcome, and thank you

for your interest in

Hazel Woods Preschool! 

We are very proud of this lovely little schoolhouse where we provide a Waldorf-inspired, nature and play-based program in West Los Angeles, California.  Great care and attention has gone into every detail to ensure that Hazel Wood's is always warm and inviting.  Imagine your child walking through the front door this autumn into a bounty of hand-made toys and new friends.    

Winters are filled with the smell of fresh baking bread, comfy slippers and story-telling by the fire.  Spring and summer bring bare-feet and water-play in the garden, homemade popsicles and bubble wands.  Your child's day will be filled with laughter, fantastic friends, and the gentle guidance of the caring Ms. Patti, Ms. Ana, Ms. Wendy, and Ms. Vicky.  Adventures in imagination await your child in this charming and exceptional preschool!

The Preschool is located in a lovely home which is dedicated to the preschool and includes a family room with fireplace, playroom, dining room, kitchen, office, bathroom, laundry room, and a play yard and gardens.   The Preschool is also home to "Cookie" our rabbit and an ant farm.  The house is situated on a friendly cul-de-sac, in a private Mar Vista/Del rey neighborhood, just south of Ballona Creek, west of Centinela, and adjacent to Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey,and Playa Vista.
