FOLLOWUP: Playground work under way for YMCA’s new Westwood Village preschool/day-care center

ORIGINAL FRIDAY REPORT: While on an errand at Westwood Village this morning, we noticed the work under way in the parking lot immediately south of the Post Office. That’s for the playground that’ll be used by kids from the new preschool/day-care center that the West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) is opening nearby. We first reported on the preschool plan almost exactly two years ago; back in November, we published a look inside the space as the remodeling work approached completion. The center will serve more than 120 kids when fully enrolled. We’re checking on the latest projection for when it’ll open.

ADDED SATURDAY: Center director Jill Mudge tells WSB, “We officially opened January 31st and have children already attending and each week add more children to our school. Families have been so happy to have us open. We are hoping to do an open house in mid March or early April.”

    It’s great to see movement on this. Will be nice to have something nice down there for a change. Almost sad that the play space is so small!

    I’m wondering why they chose that spot, rather than taking a chunk of the much larger, rarely ever used parking to the west. Convenient for the youngsters to post their mail and learn about stop signs, I guess.

Sorry, comment time is over.
