Barefoot Atelier

We are a family owned private child care center located in the heart of West Los Angeles. We speak Hebrew & Emergent Spanish!

Our program is inspired by the theories and principles of constructivism, social constructivism, and the highly regarded Reggio Emilia. We believe children are born with a natural curiosity about the world, and that cultivating this curiosity with careful listening and support, is the key to successful life long learning.

Operating as usual


Let them play without boundaries, without constraints. Childhood is their chapter of freedom, exploration, and joy. No need for structured lessons or sitting still. Let their imaginations roam wild and their spirits soar.


Captivated by these words! Intentional learning fosters a lifelong love for education. Reggio children embrace purpose and creativity, igniting a lifelong passion for learning. 🌟


Scaling new heights as our young adventurers tackle the challenge of reaching a hidden cave. Every climb is a lesson in persistence and determination. 🧗‍♂️🌲


Tu B’Shevat Windows are the best!


find out how our day took an unexpected twist! 😂

Picture this: teachers on high alert, one sprinting like lightning to catch the runaway chickens. 🏃‍♀️ Meanwhile, one of our little ones, peeping through the window, turned into a superhero, expressing their concern for our precious chickens 🐓 in the midst of all the chaos! With intense compassion, they exclaimed, “I must help teacher X because she can’t manage it alone!” 😍

It’s awe-inspiring to witness how our children step up to the plate and take responsibility for the well-being of our feathered friends. 💪 Let’s give them a round of applause for their heroic efforts! 🙌 🦸‍♂️🦸‍♀️


What does peace mean to you ?


Working with Clay builds imagination and creativity in children. Endlessly possibilities


Healthy habits take patience and intention. At Barefoot we grow some of our own (it’s a seasonal thing) and take the time to sent intentions. It’s the way we talk to children, the way we listen to them. It’s a reciprocal relationship based on trust & respect.


At Barefoot all are welcome including our chickens


Barefoot is more than a place; it’s a family. Our children crafted this sign, capturing the essence of laughter, tears, and shared parenting. In our community, everyone is embraced—children, parents, grandparents, friends, and teachers. Together, we create a meaningful bond. 💛


Happy Winter! The joys of childhood ❄️


Trust is a value to never be devalued. It’s challenging for many people. In the practice of being an ECE Director trust has led me through many years of growth. In my past I’ve struggled with it many life times ago. Now I have learned to take a deep breath and let go. Trust is an interconnected process that takes time. As a leader of a community and children Trust has been an integral part of my journey. With myself and others. I’m not responsible for how others feel, I’m responsible for how I conduct myself. To trust is to be free.


“Being listened to is so close to being loved that most people cannot tell the difference.”
David Augsberger

Children have an inherent sense of justice over what’s fair and what’s not. There is nothing fair about not being able to put your side of the story into a conversation just because you are much younger. If we find ourselves wanting to pull rank and close the conversation it is time to pause ... to breathe ... and to hear each others concerns. Sure, it will take longer, but as the Mainland Cheese ad says, “Good things take time”.


May the light shine upon us for eternity


Open to all !!! Come join the fun!

How to Talk to Kids About What's Happening in Israel Right Now – Kveller 10/11/2023

How to talk to kids about what’s happening in Israel right now -

It’s important to support children and discuss current events. Children have questions and are highly aware of what’s going on. It’s our responsibility to listen support and acknowledge their feelings and thoughts.

How to Talk to Kids About What's Happening in Israel Right Now – Kveller My heart breaks with each update from Israel. Like so many others, I am worried sick about the human beings — and especially the children — who have been killed and taken hostage in this terrible tragedy. As a parent, it’s tempting to turn to my own children, who are mercifully protected from ...
