The preschool years are a special time in a child’s life. During these years, children become more independent, begin to develop self-control and learn to assert themselves in socially accepted ways. They also begin to use thousands of words and complex sentences to express their ideas. The district’s preschool curriculum provides opportunities for your child to practice these skills and more. Our goal is to prepare your child to be successful kindergartner in the Bellevue Schools.

Our preschools offer flexible options and are conveniently located at most elementary schools. School Day preschool classes are offered 6 hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 3 hours on Wednesday. Children may also choose to attend a 3 hour Half Day preschool in the morning or afternoon. For families needing additional hours, the Extended Day program is available from 6:30 am – 6:00 pm.

No matter which program you choose, our preschool will prepare your child for a successful Kindergarten.

Research has shown that a high quality preschool program boosts the kinds of learning, social and thinking skills needed for later achievement. Bellevue School District preschool programs use the OWL (Opening the World of Learning) curriculum which focuses on those skills needed by children to become successful readers. All classrooms also utilize the Dreambox Math Program, Beebots Engineering, Handwriting without Tears and Second Step Social/Emotional Curriculum to enhance student learning in a variety of areas.
