Preschool at Roaring Mouse Creative Arts Studio is a place for children to grow, learn, play, and create. Our preschool philosophy borrows from a range of respected, diverse educational approaches with an emphasis on play and social-emotional development.
We are firm believers in the power of observation, emergent curriculum, and empowering students to explore their passions and pursue that which piques their curiosity. Our teachers observe and reflect upon what students are most drawn to exploring and plan daily experiences accordingly, providing the tools and materials needed to honor and expand upon those topics. We combine this with a strong social-emotional component based on practices developed by RM founder, Lassie Webster, and Second Step*, a curriculum designed by Committee for Children.
The daily schedule is designed to include time for play, social interaction, reflection and learning. Each day includes snack time, lunch time, and outside play in our outdoor play space. Our class time is devoted to three main areas: Creative Learning: choice of play and art activities; Cooperative Community: social and emotional skills; and Performing Arts: dance, music, drama, story-telling, play-writing.
Roaring Mouse has been a home away from home for preschool students and their families for over 20 years. We think it’s a very special place and can’t wait to share it with you and your child.
*Second Step teaches skills in the core areas of empathy, emotion management and social problem solving.
Our schedule closely follows Seattle Public Schools for vacations and holidays.
Each class has two teachers and a maximum of sixteen students.
Parents provide lunch and snack for their own child.
