WA state requires all childcare programs, even though they may offer preschool as part of their curriculum, to become licensed. Parents may check the Department of Early Learning (DEL) Website Child Care Check to verify if their program is licensed by the state of WA.

Another resource you may consider is the West Seattle Preschool Association. Their vision is to bring together preschool children, their parents and their educators in order to celebrate and promote quality preschool programs, parent education, and school collaboration.
