WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT TUVIA
We can't say enough amazing things about Tuvia! Every teacher truly cares about the kids and make each student feel so loved, comfortable, and attentively taken care of.
It took us a very long time to find the right school because no other school upon touring gave us the same sense of security/loving atmosphere that Tuvia has. The director is truly amazing and always available / present. The children just have an absolute blast every single day, with different engaging activities and play based learning.
My spouse & I often find ourselves saying "we found the perfect school!" when we receive pictures or videos throughout the day, or hear and see our child interacting with her peers and teachers, and her growth at home.
I also want to add that we are not of the Jewish faith but feel 100% welcome and comfortable at the school! Another huge plus to us was the diversity.
Both of our sons attend Tuvia and we love it! We used to send them part time but now they both go 5 days a week and I know they're in good hands. Play based, but tons of learning integrated so they don't even notice they're learning too. Also great it is part of the Temple; lots of fun activities you can choose to be involved in at your level of preference. Especially Saturday night Kids Night Outs. Yes, please. We love those!
It is an incredibly diverse and inclusive community. We, ourselves, are a family of mixed races and religions and we feel we belong and are very loved here.
Tuvia is a vibrant, engaging, and fun-loving program. We have been very happy with the administration, teachers, and program and feel fortunate to have stumbled into this community. I really appreciate the amount of free play awarded to the children, the hallways are always decorated, the classrooms are full of engaging activities and the playground is amazing.
There are rules and boundaries but not so much as to restrict the children's play and curiosity. My child has grown so much here both academically and socially. I highly recommend Tuvia for you children...it is also a wonderful community for parents. I am not Jewish so please don't let that scare you off. This is an open, warm community.
My son has been at Tuvia for a year and a half and we are very happy there. Even at a young age, he has made lasting friendships with his classmates who he looks forward to seeing on a daily basis. His teachers show constant care and concern for him in and outside of the classroom. The facility is kept safe and secure, and someone always knows where my son is and what he is doing. They use an app to keep in touch with parents and his teachers send photos and videos of his activities. He has learned so much since he started there. What I appreciate most is the Jewish education, which surpasses other Jewish preschools in the area. My son comes home singing Hebrew songs and having extensive knowledge about Jewish holidays and traditions. With one more year of school left, I believe my son will be more than prepared for kindergarten after his time at Tuvia.
My son is learning so much at Tuvia. He comes home everyday with something new he has learned. The staff here is phenomenally supportive and communicative. The app they use for check in and out, along with daily communication and updates is awesome. I love being able to see what my son is doing throughout the day. The staff also helps with potty training too, which is amazing. I've been even more impressed with the sense of community and support that is provided outside of the daily school hours, for example, organized monthly playdates for the kids and parents night out. If you're looking for a preschool in the South Bay, look no further!.
Our boys are in their second year at Tuvia and we are very pleased with their and our experiences. It warms our hearts when out of nowhere, one or both of our boys will spontaneously sing a hebrew song they learned at school. When we were researching and visiting preschools, it was important to us that the boys attend a school that was safe with a nurturing environment. Tuvia met these criteria, and the bonus for us was that they taught Jewish holidays, values and themes. We knew we found the right place for our boys when we saw the playground; a giant sand box, art easels, tire swing and track for riding tricycles all around. The boys have grown and developed under this tutelage and supervision in immeasurable ways, and we are so happy that we stumbled upon Tuvia and Temple Menorah. All families are welcome and we have recommended Tuvia, without reservation, to both Jewish and non-Jewish families and will continue to do so.
My partner and I visited dozens of preschools in the Southbay and West LA area and Tuvia felt right from the get-go. Some highlights about the school include: 1.The facilities and outdoor play area are spacious and engaging. 2. The teachers love what they do and take great care of the children. 3. This is a great play-based school that exposes the children to academics but does not force them if they are not ready. 4. We are a multi-racial/cultural/religious family and feel welcomed and at ease with the teachers, parents and staff. Although this is a Jewish facility the actual classrooms are diverse and all cultures are welcomed! 5. The school offers a number of enrichment classes (some free and some you have to pay extra for). 6. Tuvia is more than just a preschool it is a community; there are a number of Tuvia as well as Temple Menorah activities every month that one can choose to participate in even if you are not a temple member.
