Celebrating 75 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.

Our Condolences - To the Families, Children and Staff at Wallingford Cooperative Preschool we wish to send our deepest condolences at the loss of your long time, and beloved teacher, Kris Dickenson.  We all appreciate that it takes a Village to raise a child and a Co-op Preschool is the most nurturing village to develop those roots.  We celebrate with you the many years of her love of teaching and the Legacy that she has left behind.   The Magnolia Cooperative Preschool Community
