Preschool at Samena: Where swimming is part of the curriculum!

Schedule a Tour

We have been teaching children in Bellevue for over 50 years! Your child will explore and learn in a creative, nurturing, safe and FUN environment. Here at Samena, we know children learn best through hands-on experiences. Our well-rounded programs have a play-based curriculum that offers students plenty of opportunities to do just that. Play motivates, stimulates and supports children in their development of skills, concepts, language acquisition, communication skills, and concentration.  

Our programs and teachers support children in their cognitive, social, and emotional development while they grow a love for learning and exploring. To top it off, children learn water safety, stroke development skills, and enjoy constructive physical activity. Age appropriate activities include: art, reading and writing skills development, number recognition, Spanish, music, science, cooking, storytelling, health, exercise, and more.
