Developmental Preschool

The Snoqualmie Valley School District Developmental Preschool is an integrated early childhood experience, serving preschool-aged children of all abilities. The preschool uses Creative Curriculum, a play-based curriculum, to support learning through theme-based play and exploration, in addition to WAKids and TS Gold for ongoing assessment, targeted classroom activities, and developmental guiding standards for Individualized Education Plan goals.

The Developmental Preschool is centrally located at Snoqualmie Elementary School.  Preschool is offered in half-day sessions, Monday-Thursday. Younger students attend the morning session, and older and pre-kindergarten students attend the afternoon session. Classroom sizes vary, generally ranging from approximately 8-16 students. Each classroom is taught by a Washington State certificated teacher credentialed in special education and specializing in early childhood education. Classrooms are also supported by trained paraprofessionals, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and school psychologists.

Children who qualify for special education services attend preschool at no cost to families. Children with typical development attend as peer models through a tuition-based option. This allows children of all abilities to learn alongside one another in an inclusive early learning environment.

For general questions about the preschool, or if you have concerns about your child’s development, please contact Juliann Yeager , Early Childhood Education Coordinator, at (425) 831-0909.
