Our program

Preschool by the Bay is a comprehensive school year program for children ages 3-5 (participants must be potty trained). Learning and fun are fostered through themes, sharing, turn-taking and positive communication. Stories, music, art, games, snack, and play support your child’s social skills and readiness to learn. In addition to in-classroom learning, children spend time outside at our neighboring playgrounds and go on field trips to places like the Olympia Farmers Market, Olympia Family Theater, Olympia Fire Station, Timberland Library, and local parks and farms. Our teacher:student ratio is 1:8.
