Bezos Academy Federal Way
Montessori-inspired preschool program in Federal Way aims to develop creative leaders, original thinkers, and lifelong learners
With a high demand for more preschool programs in Federal Way, Federal Way Public Schools has launched a new early learning initiative with Bezos Academy to bring their tuition-free, Montessori-inspired program to our community.
More than half of families with preschool aged children in Federal Way don’t have access to affordable preschool, and it is gratifying to have Bezos Academy invest in the community. Their full-day, year-round, tuition-free preschool model for children ages 3-5 directly aligns with the district’s Early Years strategic plan goal.
The Bezos Academy Federal Way site opened in the fall of 2021 starting with two classrooms, and the program is expected to grow to reach more students in the future. Bezos Academy operates its preschool program independently from Federal Way Public Schools in one of Federal Way Public Schools’ buildings (the former DeVry building).
