Class is held in the spacious, bright basement of the Ravenna Collaboratory (unaffiliated). One open floor plan classroom contains all of our learning centers — including a home center, dramatic play center, art center, library, sensory table, large muscle equipment, and more — facilitating easy movement between centers during free play time. We use the playground at Bryant Elementary School (unaffiliated) for outdoor recess.

We are a part of the North Seattle College Cooperative Preschool Program.

University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Testimonial from the Pre-3s Class and 3-5s Class

We are currently in our 6th year at University Ravenna Cooperative Preschool and love the experience we’ve had. We have been lucky to have wonderful teachers, and kind and supportive learning environment for kids AND parents, and have found ourselves with a group of parent-friends that we love and continue to grow with! University Ravenna has allowed our family to be involved in helping our kids develop critical social-emotional skills as they head off to elementary school, as well as learning parenting skills that last beyond the preschool years. I can’t recommend this school and our experience enough.

University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Testimonial from the 3-5s Class

Teacher Nicole is absolutely amazing. We couldn’t be happier with her. She is not only a natural with the kids, but she’s also a gifted musician. And, she started the year off by introducing a new-to-us social-emotional learning curriculum, which has really resonated with the students. So far she’s used puppets, songs, and stories to teach the kids the importance of welcoming, listening, and focusing attention. You should see them with their “attention-scopes”! I can’t wait to see what’s next, and I would really encourage anyone looking for a preschool program for their three to five year old to seriously consider joining Teacher Nicole’s class.
