Since 1965, Kehillat Israel Early Childhood Center has provided an excellent educational experience and a gateway to Jewish community for families in Pacific Palisades and West Los Angeles. Our preschool utilizes the most current, proven methods and practices in early education. We foster a rich environment in which your child can grow in all developmental areas: social, emotional, intellectual, musical, artistic, and physical. We are a warm and nurturing community that aims to foster a lifelong love of learning as well as a connection to Judaism and the Jewish people. We want your child to love coming to school, so we make sure that school is fun, exciting, and welcoming. We look forward to meeting you!
