Montessori-based preschool and care

Montessori Pre-school

Thanks for visiting!

Dragonfly, Montessori-based preschool and care, is rooted in the belief that children are uniquely capable to absorb abstract concepts presented in a way that sparks the child's spirit and imagination. We provide a natural learning environment in an accessible and peaceful setting. Our students learn about their world through real-life activities and a academic-based curriculum.

Our classrooms have been set up to receive children from the ages of 2-3/4 through 6. We offer small classes with a Montessori Program, then tailored for each child, five days a week, with occasional closures according to the the area school vacation schedule. The hours are from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. For working parents, we can offer after care as arranged. 

The head teacher, Teresa Bower used to have a school on Vashon Island called Starbreak Montessori. That school was also at a home environment on a lovely piece of land, and is still an active school. Teresa now lives in an area close to Bank's Lake and surrounded by the Coulee walls. She is very honored to be working with children in this amazing age group.

Since we are almost a State Licensed Family Care, we follow the rules of a daycare, but are primarily a preschool. Class is open: Mornings, from 8:30 to 12:00, Afternoons from 1:00 to 3:30, or all day from 8:30 to 3:30. This is a smaller school, and enrollment will be limited to a total of six students the first year, nine the second, and twelve the third. Since this is a small group environment, there is a stronger individual guidance.

Monthly fee:

Mornings are $250, afternoons are $200, and full days are $375. Extended care by discussion.

Because we are a start-up school, the first two enrollments have the first month free, and if you refer a future enrollment, one month is at no-charge.
