Welcome from Kinder Prep

Kathy Griebel, Principal

Dear Families,

We are thrilled to welcome you to our 4-Star Parent Aware Kinder Prep Preschool program - a place where curiosity is encouraged, learning is fun, and language is the key that unlocks the world. Here, you will find a committed community, passionate about language immersion, inquiry, and the social and emotional well-being of our children. All of our families and staff are here because they have made an active decision to choose LILA, and that makes a difference. The level of family involvement and care for each other is second-to-none.

Guided by LILA’s award-winning global focus, Kinder Prep is a great jumpstart to Lower School’s full language immersion program. Our teachers are masters at designing engaging learning activities in Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, and English that gets our students’ brains ready for language acquisition. Learning takes place through play, and other age-appropriate activities, in a safe and child-centered learning atmosphere. Our goal is to spark children’s natural curiosity and create opportunities for exploration in language, science, math, literacy, the arts, and more. Like all LILA staff, Kinder Prep educators have extensive training and job experience, and many of our teachers hold professional certifications and degrees. They truly understand the unique needs of 3, 4, and 5-year-olds. 

Thank you for choosing LILA and entrusting us with the care and education of your child. We look forward to partnering with you on this journey. 

Kathy Griebel, Kinder Center & Lower School Principal
