Preschool & Kindergarten (2 ½  to 6 years)

As part of our pre-primary, close-knit community, we focus on the development of the whole child, not only providing personalized attention and student centered lessons, but also creating a rich and broad variety of experiences beyond our walls through art classes, stage performances, engaging field trips, and activities throughout Seattle’s eclectic neighborhoods.  It is our goal to instill within our students a clear set of values, including respect for each individual and her or his own unique talents and contributions.

  • West Seattle Montessori offers half-day and full-day programs, Mon. through Fri.
  • Before School Care is available for students from 8am to 9am.
  • After School Care available to full-day students from 3pm to 6pm.
