About Preschool Powered by Play
The Children’s Museum of Tacoma’s Preschool is inspired by the best in early childhood education and by the Museum’s mission to honor children and champion play.
we believe in the innate capacity of children to wonder, hypothesize, investigate and direct their own learning. Facilitators listen, observe, and provoke thoughtful investigations to follow the emergent interests of children within the Museum and carefully designed play-based classroom.
This relationship-based program supports parental engagement in and encouragement of the natural, playful discovery process, helping prepare children to be confident and eager learners who are ready for school and their life journey. We help celebrate the unique spark, gifts, and talents, of every child!
