TIVOLI RAINBOW GARDEN PRESCHOOL was born out of a need for a bilingual (German/English) preschool program with a caring, gentle, and non-judgmental approach to raise and educate children.

classroom about us_edrIn 2008, Ilka Sternberger created an immersion program for families who were looking for a home-like environment with a developmental, whole-child curriculum.  Her vision was to create a platform for German speaking families to sustain their heritage within the next generation by teaching their children the German language and culture in a playful environment.table

Ilka and her team bring wonder and magic to the everyday life of children and lets them develop in their own rhythm with lots of love, respect, and kindness.

Tivoli Rainbow Garden Preschool is located on the Westside of Los Angeles, close to the ocean, away from traffic, surrounded by  beautiful trees.

Our belief is:
A child is born into a family and can only grow if it feels safe, connected and nurtured. Therefore we made it our mission to nurture the family life in our community.
