Special Education Preschool

  • The majority of our Preschool students are those with special education needs. To register, your child must have an active IEP in place.

    If you think your child might have a disability, read about our intervention and assessment methods and programs:

    0-3 year olds (called Early Intervention)
    3-5 year olds (called ChildFind)

    Only after assessment and the IEP is activated, you may register your child.


Integrated Preschool

  • Children who do not have an IEP and are typically-developing have an opportunity to join our preschool to serve as peer models in a special needs classroom.
    Integrated Preschool is tuition-based and is available to typically-developing children 3-4 years old.

    *IMPORTANT* As you may be aware, Govenor Inslee ordered all K-12 schools closed in the State of Washington due to COVID-19. This includes our preschools operating at our elementary schools. For more information on our response to COVID-19, visit our NTPS website at
    Once schools reopen we will reopen this application and will process requests in the order in which they are received.
