Celebrating 76 years of growing with parents and children;
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.
