The Children’s Museum of Tacoma’s Preschool Powered by Play is inspired by the best in early childhood education and by the Museum’s mission to honor children and champion play.
We believe in the innate capacity of children to wonder, hypothesize, investigate and direct their own learning. Facilitators listen, observe, and provoke thoughtful investigations to follow the emergent interests of children within a carefully designed play-based classroom. Each learner and the collection of learners create an invested, collaborative and compassionate community that celebrates each person’s unique spark, gifts, and talents.
Preschool Powered by Play is offered at two locations. Choose either our downtown location at the Children’s Museum of Tacoma, or our Proctor District location at the Hoyt Early Learning Center.
To apply for either Preschool or Toddler Classes, please complete the above application and submit it to the Children’s Museum of Tacoma. A $50 application fee is required with this form. The application can be emailed, mailed or physically turned into our offices. Applications will be reviewed and accepted as they are received by the Children's Museum of Tacoma.
Please note that currently all classes except our Hoyt Campus PM classes are full for the 2019-2020 school year. If one of these locations are your family's top choice, please fill out the application accordingly, including a respective second class choice. We will add all applicants to our wait list.
