Welcome!

Creative Preschool is a non-profit preschool for children ages two-and-a-half to five years old, centered in the heart of beautiful Vashon Island.

Children of Creative Preschool have lived, learned, and loved for nearly four decades. We learn through exploration of our unique community and enchanting natural environment. 

Creative Preschool has always emphasized the importance of PLAY throughout our day. Our teachers design spaces that are attractive and welcoming to our students, rotating toys, games, and supplies based on student curiosities, learning themes, and current events, prioritizing safe learning environments and play opportunities for all. We work hard to develop learning activities that are not only fun, but that practice essential pre-kindergarten skills. Our themes and activities teach art, community awareness, phonological awareness, writing, pre-reading, number sense, mathematics, science, physical movement, and most importantly, social-skills. 

Our first few weeks emphasize critical social skills (getting to know each other, emotions and empathy, and procedures for our school). Once those are established, we embark on multi-sensory projects and even field trips. We want our kids to be happy, confident citizens within their peer group and community and enthusiastic learners! 

Creative Preschool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender identity, national and ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
