Little Chestnuts Preschool and Child Care Center

Re-Opening September 2021! 

Please use our “Contact Us” page to fill out the online form about your child so that you can be added to our email list to receive information about the upcoming year. 


Our daily and seasonal rhythms in Little Chestnuts Preschool are carefully planned to support the whole health of the young child.

Our day begins with a morning activity which changes daily and includes baking, painting, chopping vegetables, felting and/or sewing; all hands on experiential activities. We then greet the morning with seasonal songs, movement and finger games. This is followed by inside free play where the child’s imagination is engaged with a variety of natural wood toys in the classroom.  After playing, an all organic meal is prepared and enjoyed together in the snack room that overlooks Commencement Bay. We end the inside portion of our day with a therapeutic story or puppet show told by the teacher. Our school day ends with a walk outside, rain or shine, and finishes in the play yard where the children get more time to run and play.
