Come see our space, meet our instructors and
learn more about our fantastic programs!
Our philosophy is based on the deep understanding that children are competent human beings on a journey to discover themselves and the world. Our classroom is a beautiful space that reflects our respect for children and sets a wonderful atmosphere for them to construct their own knowledge.
Developmentally appropriate activities focus on the following skills:
Music is a key element in our holistic approach to learning. Music and movement are a natural part of life, especially for children.
Cometa Playschool is a licensed MUSIKGARTEN facility and as such we are committed to enhancing children’s early learning with the MUSIKGARTEN curriculum The Cycle of Seasons.

Children learn a second language the same way they learn their native language, by listening and imitating. At Cometa children are inspired to learn Spanish through play, songs, artistic expression and practical life activities.
Researches agree on the benefits of second language acquisition:
My 2.5 year old daughter has been attending Cometa Playschool at the Wallingford location on Stone Way for the past 6 months. She absolutely loves her school and her teachers, Maestra Manuela and Maestra Nicolet. She attends M-Th and always asks Friday through Sunday when it will be school time again. We love the small class size and individual attention each child receives. My husband is bilingual (English and Spanish) so we are particularly interested in our daughter becoming exposed to and ultimately proficient in the Spanish language. I feel this is a first rate program and we have been very pleased so far with our experience at Cometa.
My family has had the pleasure of being in involved with Cometa for the past 4 years. My daughter attended 3 years and my son currently is a student there. Manuela, who is the owner, takes such pride and responsibility in what she does. This is obvious by the conferences she attends and the resources she utilizes and integrates into the classroom. In addition to this, she has a strong presence daily by teaching, singing/playing guitar, being interactive with the kids and aware of their individual needs. I see her as an inspiring leader and I'm thrilled my kids have been exposed to her character. The teachers she hires also reflect these qualities and have been outstanding.
We love this school (my daughter attends the location in Wallingford/Fremont neighborhood). Manuela runs a great program - she is very responsive and take a balanced approach to what kids need in regards to learning while also focusing on their social and emotional development. The teachers are amazing and kind. I wish we would have found this school sooner but I know my daughter will have fond memories of her year there.
Our son has been attending at the Wallingford location for over a year, and Cometa is truly everything we were looking for in a preschool. It is a Spanish immersion preschool taught by native speakers, and we can see that our son has been absorbing Spanish even with only attending two mornings a week. The director, Manuela, and teachers, Nicolet and Paula, are absolutely wonderful - they are warm, attentive, competent, and have taken the time and care to individually help our son work through a couple different issues that have come up.
Children meet at Cometa to play, discover and learn Spanish together. Our daily activities include free play, circle time, arts and crafts and outdoor play; such activities rotate according to the children's needs and interests. Health and safety is of utmost importance and we follow the most updated Covid-19 protocols set by King County Public Health.
