Alki Co-op Preschool Snack Time
  • Thursday and Friday 9-11am, Age two by August 31st
  • Teacher: Kim Seater
  • Parent Educator: Charlotte Skeffington

Life with a 2 year old is like a Seattle day– sunny one moment and cloudy the next!

  • They are excited to play and explore.
  • Their imaginations are blossoming.
  • They still need our help moving beyond “MINE!”

The Co-op curriculum is play-based. We believe that a child’s play is his work and that learning happens best when children use their bodies, their senses, their hearts, and their minds to discover their world.

Our class is a safe place for children to express their independence by exploring a room full of opportunities. As they grow more comfortable with language, we help them learn to communicate their needs.

Parent Involvement

  • Parents work one day each week
  • Your child attends class without you on the 2nd day
  • If you cannot come in due to illness, etc., you can ask another parent to cover for you or trade.
  • We teach you ways to interact with the kids using our “positive discipline” philosophy
  • Some two year students have a hard time separating–we follow your lead and help you both make this transition
  • Parents rotate bringing a healthy snack for the children. Your snack day will be about once every one to two months

Parents get to:

  • Attend a monthly, evening parent meeting to discuss business and parenting topics
  • Help with the running of the preschool and fundraising
  • Choose a co-op job that fits your interests, skill, and time
  • Get to know other families that are investing in our children’s education
