At Pepitas we play! Students are exposed to a wide variety of individual and collaborative art projects; science experiments and math exploration; literacy through stories, songs, and early reading and writing skills; weekly activities such as yoga and chapel; outside adventures on the playground; snack time where we take time to replenish our energy, enjoy each other, and discuss aspects of our weekly theme; circle time where we advance the calendar, discuss la clima, sing songs, and read books; and music time where we sing, dance, and play instruments. And of course, we focus on Spanish and English throughout the day. We don’t have a designated Spanish time; we speak and sing Spanish and English all day! Pepitas is a wonderful place to introduce your child to school – we are dedicated to making learning joyful! You can see a little bit about what we’re up to on our Facebook page.
Pepitas’ schedule is inspired by the Shoreline School District. Our holidays and closures are consistent with Shoreline Schools, with occasional slight variations.
Pepitas enjoys all-school field trips as scheduled on Fridays – usually about once a month. Field trips are optional but encouraged! Students meet at the field trip site with their caregiver. We usually go to the pumpkin patch, fire station, children’s theater, children’s museum, PNB Nutcracker, the farm, on hikes, to the Seattle Aquarium or to the beach, and many more wonderful places to explore!
Pepitas Preschool admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
This is an optional early drop-off session in which students come together to hear/read/share stories, play, discuss student pressing issues (such as how giraffes communicate or what happens to pennies when you toss them into Lake Washington). Students bring a light breakfast snack. Space is limited.
