Bremerton School District, West Hills Montessori Preschool

Housed in a former fire station, this preschool was designed on the Montessori tenet of discovery to engage children in spontaneous activity. The apparatus bay doors were left in place to provide daylight to the common area. The existing building’s wide column spaces and high ceilings supported the program for mixed aged gathering spaces and four different classes: a private Montessori pre-school, public Montessori pre-school, kindergarten, and third grade.
