St. John's Preschool

Learning and Growing in a Safe Secure Environment


About St John's Preschool

Our preschool was established in downtown Kirkland in 1974 and has been in operation ever since. Our main goal is to make preschool a “fun” experience for the children. It is hoped that they will remember school as a fun and positive place to be. While having fun your child will learn many things, although we do not consider ourselves an “academic” preschool. We try not to take ourselves too seriously except when it comes to providing a safe secure environment for your little ones. We feel we take care of the whole family including parents and siblings not just our students.

As a ministry of St. John Episcopal Church we are a Christian preschool but accept children regardless of faith background.

Your child will learn many things while they are with us. We focus on the skills that they will need to be successful in Kindergarten – social and classroom skills.  In everyday lessons (which revolve around themes) they will be exposed to letters, numbers, shapes, colors, patterns and sequencing.  They will learn to take turns, sit on circle, complete a task, play with friends, and communication skills. Our main goal is to have your child feel safe and cared for while they are away from you.  We want school to be “fun” for them so that when they are 18 they’ll, hopefully, remember that school is a fun place to be.

Dear Families,


All children will be required to wear well-fitting facial masks at all times while at preschool. If you do not have one, we can provide a disposable mask. We also ask that at drop off and pick-up, it be only 1 adult, who is also masked.


The children will be permitted to remove their masks for snack or lunch (Pre-K) . They will also be permitted to ask their teacher if they need a mask break. They will be set up off to the side, away from all classmates, and may do a puzzle or something similar. We will keep those breaks short for the safety of everyone in the class.


Thank you,

Alesia Portugal-Director
