Early Childhood Education


Neighborhood House has been providing high-quality early childhood education programs for decades and was one of the first Head Start preschool providers in the Northwest region. Today we offer a full range of early-childhood education programs for low-income families (from expectant parents to those with children birth to 5 years old). We focus on providing culturally-appropriate services to all enrolled families, many of whom are recent refugees and immigrants. 

Neighborhood House Home Visiting Programs
Our Early Head Start program provides weekly home visits that build on parent strengths to promote strong parent child relationships and deepen understanding of child development. We serve low-income families with children from birth to age 3 (as well as expectant parents) living in Tukwila, SeaTac, Skyway, Burien, West Seattle, Central Seattle or South Seattle. Families also receive developmental and health screenings, family support services and access to group activities.

Our Parent Child Home Program (PCHP) provides weekly home visits in the home language of families to build early literacy and school readiness by focusing on supporting parent-child relationships and learning through play. PCHP serves low-income families with children ages 16-30 months living in White Center, Tukwila, SeaTac, West Seattle, Central Seattle or South Seattle.

Neighborhood House Preschool Programs
Designed for children of all abilities, including those with special needs, our programs combine excellent teaching with cultural sensitivity to foster healthy development and build school readiness. To help our students be successful, we provide family support services and meals, snacks, developmental and health screenings for all of our students.

As a provider of Head Start, ECEAP, and Step Ahead, Neighborhood House Preschool offers half day and full day classes for low-income families with children ages 3-5 living in West Seattle, Central Seattle and South Seattle. Using the Early Head Start combination model, we also have a Toddler Preschool for low income families with children ages 2-3 living in South Seattle. Children attend class two days each week and families receive monthly home visits.
