Our Philosophy

Established in 1946, the Wagon Wheel School experience is centered on creativity and cultural awareness. Our children are always encouraged to be independent thinkers and problem solvers.

Hidden away in a corner of Hollywood, the campus is an idyllic haven for its diverse, multi-cultural group of young students. Three buildings serve as classrooms: the first for 2-3 year-olds, the second for 3.5-4.5 year-olds, and the third is home to the Developmental Kindergarten Class (4.5-5 year olds). A fourth building—designed by parents who are architects and interior designers—is an auditorium and performance space where children are taught dance, music, and engage in many different physical activities. The campus buildings surround a beautiful, lush garden which is divided into a number of discrete play areas for children of different ages.


Teachers introduce shapes, colors, basic math concepts and letter recognition through a wide variety of creative art and science projects. Learn more about our higher grades.


Weekly music, dance, and art classes, plus a multitude of ever-changing cultural and musical events, enrich each student’s learning experience.


We promote self-esteem and expressing needs through words. Through Monday show & tell and Wednesday class performances children learn to speak and engage in a group setting.


We foster a familial environment—very inviting, very comfortable, very stimulating—where there is always laughter. Our students’ parents are always welcome to participate.
