I'm relocating this month to Seattle from a state where pre-k is not publically funded. Does WA offer pre-k (4 year old kindergarden) as part of their public school system or is it also something parents pay for at private institutions?

Which public Elementary schools in Seattle would locals recommend? NO SUBURBS, please just Seattle?

Any other advice is also appreciated

As far as I know, pre-K is not funded here. As to the good schools in Seattle, I'll let someone speak to that, as I live in the burbs!.

Washington state does fund some preschool but like Head Start, you have to qualify by income.

As an addendum in WA, only half day Kindergarten is funded and you have to pay for the other half unless you qualify for assistance.

Thanks all. I know some states are moving towards state funded preschool programs. No, we wouldn't qualify for the income based programs like headstart.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a really good private preschool then?

Thanks all!
