About Roaring Mouse Creative Arts Studio Preschool Programs

We offer two preschool programs from September through June for children three to five years old. The Morning Preschool is Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings; the Afternoon Preschool is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Each class has a maximum of fifteen students and there are two teachers for each class. Our schedule closely follows that of Seattle Public Schools for vacations and holidays.

The daily schedules of both classes are designed to meet the needs of children for play, social interaction, reflection and learning. Our class time is devoted to three main areas: Creative Learning (choice of play and art activities), Cooperative Community (social and emotional skills) and Performance Arts (dance, music, drama, story-telling, play-writing). To see our preschool classes in action, please check out the photo gallery!

We are firm believers in emergent curriculum. Emergent curriculum is based on the students’ interests and ideas. Teachers observe what students are most drawn to exploring and plan daily experiences accordingly, providing the tools and materials needed to honor and expand upon those interests and ideas. We offer a strong social emotional component based on practices developed by Lassie Webster for the Kindergarten Arts Program and Second Step, a curriculum designed by Committee for Children.
