Class Overview

We offer four different classes for children ages 18 months through five years old. Our preschool runs from September through May and follows the Shoreline School District schedule for holidays and breaks. Children are not required to be potty trained in order to attend classes.


For Fall and Winter 2021-2022 we are using Model 2, as described below.

Friendships are strengthened,
