Welcome to Community School (CSWS)

Founded in 2005, The Community School of West Seattle (CSWS) is a creative, exploratory and play-based preschool that each year serves 100 children between 3-5 years old, and their families. 

We believe play is the vital work of childhood and that young children learn by doing.  Through authentic, emergent, project and play-based learning the school strives to develop each student socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically, so that every child will gain a sense of self and life-long confidence.
