A early childhood education program led by Teacher Sandy in a schoolhouse cottage two buildings away from Alki Elementary. Students will have plenty of outdoor learning in Schmitz Park, practicing “pre-skills,” which lay the groundwork for the future. Through structured and unstructured learning time, the goal is to gain skills that ultimately help them learn to read, write, build their math and science skills, and become successful, lifelong learners.
This program will focus on personalized learning for each child and plenty of outdoor play in Schmitz Park and the Alki playfield. Children will be focused on social, emotional growth as well as the foundation of writing, math, science and art.
