The Seattle Preschool Program (SPP) offers high-quality, affordable preschool to children ages 3-5 across the City of Seattle. Seattle’s Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL) provides free or affordable tuition for families to attend preschool in high-quality classrooms run by Seattle Public Schools and community-based organizations across the city.
Summer Day Camps for preschool are also available. These camps meet the developmental needs of young children, focusing on emotional, social, physical, and cognitive skills to prepare children for success in school and in life. Preschool activities include art, blocks, dramatic place, library time, cooking, discovery science, singing, and outdoor play.
We maintain a low teacher to child ratio of 1 to 8, building a classroom community where children learn how to get along with others, self-regulate and solve problems peacefully. Using research-based early childhood developmental curriculum, each child’s progress is tracked through observations, assessments, and portfolios. We work closely with families and meet twice a year for parent-teacher conferences.
