West Seattle school news: Cometa Playschool growing, moving

Got a note from Michelle today, saying she’d spotted a sign on part of the cleared-out Prudential property in the 3200 block of California SW, saying Cometa Playschool is moving there. School operator Manuela Slye confirms with this short news release:

Cometa Playschool has outgrown its home-based space and is moving to a new and bigger location at 3212 California Ave SW, in the Admiral District of West Seattle, just one block south of Hiawatha Park. The new facility enables a separate art room and expanded bilingual programs for children ages 12 months to 6 years, all led by native Spanish speaking teachers trained in Early Childhood Education. Cometa’s play based philosophy inspires children to learn Spanish through songs, games and artistic expression. Cometa is currently accepting applications for summer and fall programs.

    Congratulations on your new space – it is wonderful to see a small business thrive and outgrow space.

    Three cheers for Cometa! Looking forward to your new space. (though will have to resist the urge to pop into Small Clothes, daily)

    Good luck with the permit process. I find it hard to believe that this will be allowed in the current conditions, business use. Etc. To operate a pre-school you are only allowed to care for kids age 2 and up? I think people should be cautioned when signing up….Pre-schools are required to follow same zoning laws as Daycares in the city of seattle….Must has an occupancy permit, Sprinkler system, multi bathrooms, outdoor play and at least 5 parking stalls off street!

Sorry, comment time is over.
