It's hard to believe, but pretty soon the rush to get preschool applications will be here. Parents tend to stress themselves out over making the 'best' choice for their children's first encounter with formalized schooling. I'm amazed at how the process seems to have taken on a college application type of hype where there are waiting lists and nail-biting moments. I remember those days...being extra early and diligent knowing that with twins I needed 2 spots in my favorite preschool. I'm sure I wrote some sappy tear-jerking separation anxiety blog posts about it.
Lucky for Kirkland, there is another preschool in the mix that is accepting applications for 2011 right now. Evergreen Academy is a Montessori school that is opening their newest location at 12233 116th Ave NE. Their building is being renovated and will be open in January of 2011. You can find infant, toddler, beginner and preschool programs. In preschool, you must be potty trained (well, we know YOU are, make sure your kiddo is!) and you can expect your little lovie to be exposed to subjects like math, geography, culture, art, science and even spanish on a daily basis. There is a half day (9-12) and a full day option available (9-3) with an extended care program as well. There is an OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday 9/29 @ 5:30pm at the Bothell location. If you have questions or want to be kept in the loop about upcoming open houses/tours/details, contact the Principal, Carrie Stull. ~j
