Another new preschool has just opened, this time at the Boren Building. Joleen from the West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) shares the news, and the photo:

We just opened a new preschool at Arbor Heights / STEM elementary. The photo attached is of the first day! It’s a half-day, year-round program for children ages 2.5 to 5 years old. Our programs are values-based, with an emphasis on building self-reliance through our core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Children have the opportunity to learn language through stories, songs, math, art and crafts, and theme-based activities in a warm and inviting environment. Our program provides: Experienced and professional teachers, creative curriculum, reading, science, math, technology, & engineering activities and a nutritious lunch We still have some availability – contact Emilia Holbik at eholbik@seattleymca.org

The Boren Building (permanent home to STEM and interim home for one more year to Arbor Heights ES) is at 5950 Delridge Way SW.

    Will this be the program to replace the one currently at the West Seattle Y? As the new Y has no plans to have an on-site program after its remodel there are a lot of concerned parents

    Hi Y Friend – This is a new program! We will find a place for the West Seattle YMCA Preschool as part of the expansion process.

    Is it staying at the Boren building after AH leaves? Is Boren the permanent home?

    Bonnie, the plan is for the teachers to move with the Arbor Heights program.

    Also wondering why a new preschool opened when we still haven’t heard of a location for the current West Seattle Y preschool location that is supposedly closing in July…over 70 families rely on that program for full-time care.

Sorry, comment time is over.
