The Washougal School District offers preschool at each of its elementary school sites – Cape Horn-Skye, Columbia River Gorge, Gause and Hathaway – for children age 3 – 5 years old.

Classes are developmentally appropriate socially, emotionally and academically utilizing curriculum based on the Washington State Early Learning and Development Guidelines. Purposeful play, assorted structured learning, healthy habits and positive social skills are reinforced daily in the classroom.
