West Seattle Nanny Share

After-School Program

A early nanny share program focused on personalized learning for each child. 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.

Program Description

We are a pandemic pod for safe learning. We love being outside and our program has plenty of outdoor exploration and learning in Schmitz Park and the Alki playfield.

At The Alki Cottage Preschool, we're focused on a safe environment (following all CDC guidelines) and personalized learning so each child is supported in the way they learn best. Our classes are all in small groups/pods to ensure safety and a lot of 1:1 learning time supported by the teacher. Children will be focused on social and emotional growth as well as exploring the "pre-skills" learning the basics of writing, math, science and art.


Outdoor Learning at Schmitz Park, Alki Playfield and Alki Beach (exploring tide pools, investigating the woodpeckers and owls in the park)
Hands-on activities with Science, Math, and Art
Each week has a theme based on the children choosing their interests: for example dinosaurs, bugs or airplanes
