Tivoli families clean the beach with It’s Overdue. The children learned what plastic trash is all about and had a good time cleaning the beach.


Easter time is the most fun for everyone. Painting eggs, planting seeds for the Easter baskets, and watching the grass grow, makes the children happy. Celebrating Easter with the whole community with egg walks, sack jumps, and the surprise treat from the Easter Bunny was a blast.


We had so much fun in March. Visiting a regenerative farm in Filmore, celebrating Fasching, and having Kasperle come to visit were the highlights.






We had a wonderful Valentine’s celebration. In anticipation the children were making beautiful cards for their loved ones and learned a Valentine’s verse. We also talked about mindfulness and how to care for people who are less fortunate than we are. The parents were thrilled to get roses and big hugs.



Tivoli is bringing winter fun to Los Angeles with cutting snowflakes, crafting showmen, and making a family of snow people.


Christmas fun at Tivoli, preparing for Sankt Nikolaus to arrive. Baking, crafting, and celebrating Advent, lighting the Advent wreath candles, one Sunday at a time, until all four candles are lit and Christmas is here.


Our lantern walk this year was in the Culver City neighborhood where all the neighbors really appreciated us bringing light into the darkness. The children had fun playing out the St. Martins story with a horse, a beggar, and St. Martin.

We also had yummy “Weckermaenner” as a traditional treat.


The fairy delighted us with a visit for Halloween. Click here to see the fairy singing and dancing.


Pumpkin fun at Tivoli, spiders and webs, feeding Scooter, our neighborhood turtle,  painting the pumpkins orange, and our squirrel visitor sneaking a drink.
