We have had a nightmare of a time trying to find a quality preschool in our area that doesn't have a very long waitlist. Until... Monkey Business Preschool! Brand-new to Seattle (opened in September 2006), this small school is run by a mother-daughter teaching team. The environment is a delight - a cozy open bungalow with lots of natural light, wood floors, cheerful rugs, and lots of fun and educational toys. The teachers are amazing-- really great with kids with a true passion for teaching. The amount of energy and thought that they put into their classroom and curriculum never ceases to amaze us -- they are constantly coming up with really fun and creative activities, and make a point of keeping things 'fresh' -- for example, they rotate the sensory table on a weekly basis... sand, 'gak', gravel, etc! I would HIGHLY recommend this preschool-- I fully expect that, once it is "discovered" it will have a waitlist to rival the rest!
