Fremont Community School (FCS) is a Waldorf-inspired nonprofit preschool that is dedicated to giving young children every opportunity to come together and learn in a vibrant, holistic environment. FCS has been serving families of preschool aged children from Wallingford, Fremont, Phinney Ridge, Ballard, University, and Greenlake neighborhoods since 1986.
On Saturday, December 11th, Fremont Community School will be holding an in-person Open House from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM for prospective families who are looking to enroll their child for the 2022-23 school year at the Orchard Preschool located at 3530 Interlake Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98103.

The Orchard Preschool serves children 2.5 to 5 years old for up to 4 hours per day; morning or afternoon; with flexible schedule options between 2 and 5 days per week; during the school year (September through May) and during the summer (June through August.) FCS’s Orchard Preschool provides an outdoor, explorative play-based education program that emphasizes the emotional and physical development of children. This program is 100% outdoors, whatever the weather, in an expansive play area. It is in this dynamic environment that children learn and retain the most from their experience. Talking about the worm they just found while it wiggles in their hands teaches young children far more about worms than they could retain from a book. In our fully fenced garden play yard, children are allowed to climb, dig, run, and splash to their heart’s content. Our “toys” are open-ended and inspire imagination and cooperation in a constantly changing platform for creative play. Children enjoy building, sewing, singing, story-telling, painting, baking, and learning in a myriad of ways through their experiences at Fremont Community School. The social and emotional wellbeing of the children in our care is of the utmost importance to us and is essential for their future. It is our work to help them build the foundational knowledge to support the lifelong pursuit of mastering kindness.
