Inspired By Passion
The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences. We must widen the range of topics and goals, the types of situations we offer and their degree of structure, the kinds and combinations of resources and materials, and the possible interactions with things, peers, and adults. –Loris Malaguzzi

our classrooms

Ocean Room (2.5–3.5 year olds)

Ocean Room belongs to Teacher Bella, and she is responsible for helping nurture our smallest Saplings – this room is for students who are not yet potty trained and has a heavy focus on creative exploration and play. 

Sunshine Room (3.5–4 year olds)

Hola Teacher Marisa! In Sunshine, our students take the next step in their prescool journey and are  introduced to more structured sensory play, dramatic expression and guided art projects. Sunshine Room spends a lot of time working on social and emotional development to prepare our students for Pre-K and beyond. 

Forest Room (4–6 year olds)

Forest Room is Teacher Bailey's domain, and it's always an adventure. In Forest, we work on all the skills our Saplings will need to progress into Kindergarten, with a key focus on social skills and literacy development. 

Fostering a love of learning and art

At Skagit Art Preschool, we aim to provide a comprehensive and robust experiential education for all of our little friends – who we affectionately refer to as Saplings. We believe our children are complete and whole people, capable of extraordinary things,  and that our work as teachers  is to lay a strong foundation that will create lifetime learners who value and appreciate the arts. 

"Our task is to help children communicate with the world using all their potential, strengths and languages, and to overcome any obstacle presented by our culture."
