Early Learning (Preschool)

All Tacoma Public School preschool programs provide a safe and nurturing environment.

Our goal is to prepare students for kindergarten and beyond, using researched-based, age-appropriate curriculum that focuses on the domains of Early Learning essential to school readiness:

  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Language and Literacy
  • Perceptual, Motor, and Physical Development
  • Cognition

Preschool programs, including full-day and half-day programs, are offered at many locations across the Tacoma School District.  Families with an annual household income below 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level will receive priority consideration for enrollment into free programs.
