Multi-Age Classroom (MAC)

Reserve spots by signing up in the MAC room, emailing, or calling 206-282-9753. 

The MAC provides drop-off childcare for children of Co-op members, children enrolled in regular preschool classes, as well as siblings of children attending regular preschool classes. The MAC provides a safe, reliable, affordable, and fun place for siblings to play while you are attending class with your child. The MAC accepts recurring reservations for regular childcare as well as drop-ins. The MAC is operated by the Magnolia Cooperative Preschool.

We provide a wide range of toys, games, books, puzzles, as well as arts and crafts in the MAC. There is a scheduled mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack, as well as a scheduled lunch. We ask that you provide a snack or lunch for your child at drop off.

The MAC is located just down the hall from the classrooms and is staffed by some pretty awesome folks!
