Preschool and Pre-Kinder Curriculum

Our curriculum is a combination of Montessori-style and play-based philosophies. There is a great deal of value in a structured program, but the student-teacher collaboration in our program creates a broader and more active learning experience for each student. Our curriculum meets Washington State Early Learning Educational Standards.
