Seattle Parks and Recreation offers a diverse range of programs for the social, recreational, and physical development of youth throughout Seattle.
Seattle Parks and Recreation, in partnership with Associated Recreation Council operates half-day preschool programs in neighborhood community centers.
Preschool Programs are based on The Creative Curriculum for Preschool from Teaching Strategies. Children attending at least three days a week will be observed and assessed using The Creative Curriculum developmental objectives.
Our school-readiness program meets the developmental needs of young children, focusing on emotional, social, physical, and cognitive skills to prepare children for success in school and in life. Classrooms are set up with safe and nurturing environments, fun-filled learning areas, consistent schedules and routines, and both large and small group times. Preschool activities include art, dramatic play, library time, cooking, discovery science, singing, and outdoor play.
