About Us

Interlaken Preschool is a play-based, Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool for children ages two and a half to five years old in Capitol Hill, located on the Stevens School campus.  We are a licensed, non-profit.  Our approach is shaped by our commitment to emergent curriculum and anti-bias practices, and by the proven ideas and experiences of the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

We are a part of Sound Child Care Solutions.  Our mission is to prepare young children for school and life by providing high quality early childhood education. 


We offer several options to meet the individual needs of children and their families.  Applications for the next school year are due on February 1, however we continue to accept applications beyond that date until classrooms are filled. Once classrooms are filled, children can be put on our waiting list. While a child’s position on our waiting list is one factor we consider when making enrollment decisions, we also strive to create a balanced classroom in terms of gender, age range, and diversity.


Interlaken Preschool is a play-based, Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool.  In touring our site, you will see an emphasis on documentation displays.  This is our way of showing children's thoughts and explanations. These are done with photographs, visual presentations, and transcripts to show the child's learning process.  We view curriculum as everything that happens during our time with the children. We believe each moment offers an opportunity to explore relationships and create a community that nurtures children, teachers, and families.
