TCS and the Future of Preschools in Seattle

KOMO TV Local Story

We feel so lucky to be one of the small preschools maintaining a voice and creating a "new" future in Seattle. 

Here's where TCS stands with its move to 7400 Woodlawn: 

  • Final Draft of LEASE (check); 
  • Building Renovation Plan (check); 
  • City of Seattle Building Permit (check); 
  • Contractor's bids (nearing completion); 
  • Capital Funding and Grant Proposal (being written for submission); and,
  • Valentine's Day Party Invitations ❤️😍 (students working them).

$2500 Year End Match

TCS is both humbled and stoked by the ongoing support of our families, present and past.

Generous donations this season (specifically, a $2500 Match) have inspired us to 'challenge' and ask those of you still wanting to make your year end charitable gift go even farther!

TCS is excited about welcoming our students and families into our school’s new home in September 2018.

Final regulations from the city permitting office are expected in a few weeks. Check out our proposed BLUEPRINT to transform the 7400 Woodlawn space into a more formal learning environment.

From all of us at TCS - Teachers and the Board - we hope your holiday season is full of peace and joy.


Future's Update


Hurry up and wait seems to be the mantra... Since June, our Future's Committee has plodded along this summer; let's chalk it up to the current heat wave for slowing things down. 


August is a new month, and with it, we should start to see some movement. Our Preliminary Permit Meeting with the City of Seattle is scheduled for August 31st.


From there, we can solidify our blueprint and list of tenant improvements as well as complete the formal lease agreement with 7400 Woodlawn. We'd like to give a big shout out to both Daniel Bugbee and Jerry Buss for their expertise and legal advice.


In the meantime, TCS is looking forward to starting its 53rd year of operation. This will be our last school year the UCUCC building - our classes are full, teachers are prepared, and students and parents (in particular) are anxiously awaiting our first day of class September 5th.


We'll keep you posted of our progress and ways to be involved.


Stay cool,

~Team TCS
