My mission is to create a rich social, physical, creative, andacademic environment where children ages 3-5 can build friendships, problem-solve, gain confidence, and have fun. Neighborhood Preschool is a place for children and parents to gently transition between the early years of home and the larger world of elementary school. It is a part-time private pre-kindergarten in the High Point neighborhood of West Seattle. It is a place where children can gain confidence and basic skills before entering kindergarten, where they can have a successful first experience at their school learning career. We focus on learning what it means to go to school. How do we treat one another? What is my responsibility as a learner? And we have lots of time for practice, because we are all learning.
