Where Parents and Children Learn Together

Developing Successful Learners * Supporting Positive Parenting * Affordable * Fun

One of the Cooperative Preschools in West Seattle

Welcome to our vibrant community for families with children ages 2 through 5:

Just blocks from Alki Beach and down the hill from The Junction , we exemplify the best of the West Side. Alki kids get to do the messy, creative, intriguing things that stimulate their curiosities and fire up their growing brains (and keep the mess out of your own home!).

Look for our bright red door and step into a world of exciting learning!

Preschool for your child…Parent community for you

What We Provide…

Our preschool teachers provide a rich environment full of learning activities that are just right for the developmental stage of your child. Our specialty is helping children learn the joy of discovery through play and guided learning interactions where they:

  • explain scientific discoveries like why drops of color make tunnels in ice…
  • solve social predicaments like who gets to serve the pretend pizza first…
  • resolve potential emotional hurdles like how to practice self control when feeling frustrated

How Parents Help…

Because parents get to assist in the classroom one day each week and the adult-child ratio is so high, the choice of learning centers to explore is wide and opportunities for critical thinking and social problem-solving are great.

Check the Parents tab for more information about Parent Involvement.

Curriculum…

Our curriculum is aligned with WaKIDS, Washington State Kindergarten Entrance Guidelines and supports:

  • Family connection
  • Whole child assessment for individualized learning
  • Supporting smooth transition into Kindergarten
