Play-based Preschool Education
For over thirty years we’ve been supporting our students’ play — focusing on their social-emotional learning and preparing them for success as they grow.
Join us! We’re accepting applications for our 2021-2022 classes. We’re moving to the North Seattle Campus, so all applications should go through our future partner, Northeast Toddlers Cooperative Preschool!

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.Fred Rodgers
We’re joining forces with Northeast Toddlers Cooperative Preschool and Latona Cooperative Preschool and moving to their amazing classrooms on the North Seattle College campus. Our new classrooms are only a short drive from our previous location and have some amazing benefits in what they offer in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Open Floor Plan Classroom
Just as in our previous classroom, our new classrooms have open floor plans that contain all of our learning centers — including a dramatic play center, art center, library, sensory table, and more — facilitating easy movement between centers during free play time.
Education for Parents, too!
We are part of the North Seattle College Cooperative Preschool Program. Their mission is to provide high-quality, affordable preschool education for children and education and support for parents. Each of our classes has a dedicated Parent Educator who works with their class every week and leads monthly evening parent education classes specifically tailored for their class.
All play is associated with intense thought activity and rapid intellectual growth. The highest form of research is essentially play.Neville V. Scarfe
