Tzu Chi Great Love Preschool in Walnut, California was established in 2013 and provides a nurturing educational experience where children learn and develop life skills through guidance, exploration, and creativity. Our goal is to inspire a love of learning and develop their full potential within a diversified educational environment that embraces school, family, and the community.

Through "humane education,” we awaken children’s conscience and good-will, cultivating good character traits, honesty, and compassion. Our holistic program addresses the “whole person,” developing spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical, and creative qualities. Classes are themed on humanistic principles including gratitude, respect, love, courage, tolerance, and perseverance, and inspire the spirit of Great Love which students carry home to the family and community.

Each day is a learning adventure at our preschool in Walnut

Where Children Thrive

With small class sizes so they can engage with their peers and gain social skills, and areas where students can develop athletic abilities, each school day is enriching.

Cultivating gratitude, respect, and love through character education.

Our curriculum follows the requirements of the National Association for Early Childhood Education. Our teachers provide bilingual English and Chinese instruction, and they do so with care and patience in order to inspire curiosity, analysis, and exploration which are at the root of learning. Courses are developed then taught with the utmost integrity and empathy, in a supportive environment that fosters positive peer interactions.

Our teachers incorporate a variety of outdoor activities as well, encouraging students to draw on both their intellectual abilities and their physical senses during learning and exploration. These practices create a stimulating learning experience that assists students in building self-confidence, self-awareness, and self-esteem.

We are grateful for our inspiring teachers
