School Update

On December 9th, 2019 the City of Burien notified the BCP board that the school's lease, set to expire December 31st, 2019, would not be renewed for the 2020-2021 school year, and concurrently announced the imminent closure of the Annex property to take place by January 31st, 2020. You can read more from the City as well as a letter to the editor of the B-Town Blog below.

The City has since decided to extend our lease through the end of the school year in May, and are addressing some the issues that impact our school. For the 2020-2021 school year we will be in a new location, but we will resume classes for current students at the Annex on February 4th and will be there until a suitable new space is procured, or until the end of the school year.


Our amazing teachers and supportive band of parents, alumni and community members have come together in a way that shows the legacy of our school as well as the value of affordable, play-based preschool education.  We will make this transition gracefully and with a minimum disruption to our children.

We begin our Open Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year on February 3rd.  If you're interesting in joining us, you can find our registration form at the "Join Us" page above.  You can send your form to the P. O. Box listed, priority granted based on postmark date, or you can bring it to our Open House, scheduled for Feb. 12th, from 6-8 p. m..  

What can you do to help?

Share our GoFundMe link and ask your networks to share it also. This is a big job, and we know we can't rely solely on our volunteer parents or alumni:
