  • Look for Holiday Giving Wreaths in Your Classrooms!
    Starting this week, you will find a holiday giving wreath hanging in each classroom, with mitten tags. For the past two years the amazing families at our school have provided gifts such as toys, clothing, and gift cards to children enrolled at Morningsong Preschool, directed by Wellspring Family Services. Morningsong is a childcare and preschool program in Seattle for children ages one to five who are homeless and living in emergency or transitional housing.

    * Bring in the unwrapped item to the office anytime between now and 3:45 on Dec 15th and place them in the boxes labeled Wellspring.

    *Attach the tag with the child’s name to the outside of the gift so it can be distributed to the child for which it was requested. (For those of you unable to shop, gift cards are very much appreciated.)

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:

Read on to find out what this New York Times article has to say about play-based learning.

Growing with parents and children for more than 70 years, we are the oldest and largest cooperative preschool in Seattle. The emphasis of our program is the social development of the child. Of primary importance is building a child's positive self-image, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Social, intellectual, and psychological gains are made through creative and cooperative play.
