General Enrollment Information:

  • Our program runs from September through May.
  • Open Enrollment for the following Fall for new students starts February.
  • Continuous enrollment throughout the year is on a space available basis–feel free to contact us.

Which class is right for your child?

Alki Preschool has classes for children age 2 through age 5:

  • We have separate classes held 2, 3, and 4 times a week.
  • The class and the number of days your child attends each week depend on his or her age.
  • This is determined by your child’s age on August 31.
  • For example, our Two Day 2s class is for children who are 2 and turning 3 during the school year:
  • If your child turned 2 in April, is still 2 on August 31, s/he will enroll in our 2s class
  • If your child will turn 3 in September, was still 2 on August 31, s/he will enroll in our 2s class

It is simpler than it sounds! We essentially use the same cut off as Seattle Public Schools so that kids from our 4s class flow smoothly into kindergarten.


  • Because we are a Co-op,  tuition is affordable.
  • Tuition is set by a vote of the membership and is paid monthly.
  • Tuition includes Parent Education and Preschool Spanish in the 4s class
  • Parents are involved in some fundraising.
  • Partial scholarships are available.

Class title or number of sessions per week Tuition for 2016-2017

In comparing tuition costs across programs, or across other West Seattle Co-op Preschools, it may be helpful to know that differences are due to differences in programming. For instance, foreign language component, length of preschool day, parking expenses, fundraising base, etc.

Send an email or leave a phone message noting name of preschool and your child’s date of birth.
