The Seattle Preschool Program (SPP) offers high quality, affordable preschool to children across the city of Seattle, making high quality early learning equitable, accessible, and affordable for all families.
In the SPP classrooms at the EEU, our teachers follow a general education curriculum called Creative Curriculum, which is a unit-based curriculum that provides students with the opportunity to explore a variety of topics while receiving instruction in all academic areas including literacy, mathematics, fine-motor, gross-motor, and social-emotional skills. The classroom staff adapts this curriculum to meet the needs of all students, and they embed specific learning targets within small or large-group lessons providing access and encouraging participation. Our SPP classrooms are play-based, and children are given many opportunities to follow their interests and play with their friends with a variety of materials in and outside of the classroom.
The SPP classrooms at the EEU emphasize the development of pre-academic, social, communication and motor skills that enable children to successfully transition to elementary school.
In addition, teams implement systematic instruction to children with special needs. Physical therapists, Occupational therapists and Speech Language Pathologists work with the teaching staff to provide services for students who qualify. Special Education and Related Services are provided by EEU staff through a contract with Seattle Public Schools (SPS).
SPP is the only program where families are required to pay tuition to the City of Seattle at the EEU. Tuition is determined on a sliding scale based on your family’s income. To learn more visit the Seattle Preschool Program website.
