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.
