**Please note that school will begin at 8:30 and end at 2:30 each day for our PK program for the 2024-2025 school year. We are unable to offer early drop off or after care at this time.

Pacific Ridge Beginning School provides a safe, developmentally appropriate, nurturing environment that promotes social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth as well as a positive self-image and a love of learning.

Enrollment for 2024-2025 is open!


We will begin accepting 2024-2025 Reservation Forms for new preschool students as of April 15th, 2024. All placement is subject to availability based on current enrollment. To be considered for a slot please fill out our "Online Reservation Form" linked HERE, in addition, you will be asked to pay a one-time $100.00 enrollment fee payable to Pacific Ridge Elementary School (this does NOT include students who will qualify for Preschool Promise). Both the Reservation Form and the enrollment fee are required to secure placement. This one-time payment will be credited to your first month's payment upon placement confirmation. Our program is partly funded by a Preschool Promise grant through the Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Division. 


We offer two placement options for enrollment into Pacific Ridge Beginning School. The first is a paid slot option. For our paid slot option we prioritize 4-year-olds at this time. If space allows we will consider 3-year-old students. We also prioritize students in the Seaside School District boundary. For our paid slot option we can enroll up to 13 students. Our second option is our Pre-School Promise option. Families must qualify for this free enrollment. Further information is provided below.
