Register for Preschool
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. We offer five, three and two day class structures at the Children's Museum of Tacoma Campus.
To apply please complete the applicable application above and submit it to the Children’s Museum of Tacoma. A $50 application fee is required with this form.
