Your child’s Preschool Teacher provides an enriching environment just right for young children to explore and learn.
- Just imagine your child splashing in the water table, making messy art, building with blocks and trains, sitting for a healthy snack, joining friends to climb, dance and sing!
- Some children are not “toddling” when they begin, but they will be soon enough!
Parent Education & Support
Parent, grandparent, nanny, special adult attends with their child and is automatically enrolled in the South Seattle College Parent Education program.
Your Parent Educator is there each week, individually and in discussion groups, to provide the latest in child development and guidance.
- Just imagine talking about tantrums, picky eaters, midnight wakers, furniture climbers, brain growth, language development and more with other people who understand and parent educators who have tips to help!
- And adults learn tips about interacting with all the children–and see how their own child is learning to be with other little ones!
- You will be building your village and making connections.
Parents get to:
- Attend a monthly, evening parent meeting to discuss business and parenting topics
- Help with the running of the preschool and fundraising
- Choose a co-op job that fits your interests, skill, and time
- Get to know other families that are investing in our children’s education
As a member of this Co-op, your commitment is:
- Attend class one day each week, working alongside the Children’s Teacher interacting with the children…or alternating every other week into Discussion Group with the Parent Educator
- Attend an evening Class Meeting, once per quarter, to learn about guidance and discipline to use at home and at school…and have an adult night out together!
- Choose and hold a preschool job that fits your interests, skill, and time (i.e. Community Builder, Class Treasurer, Play-Dough Maker, Librarian)
- Choose one quarterly parent education seminar from a variety of topics such as: Sleep, Sibling Relationships, Guidance & Discipline, Raising an Only Child, Potty Training, Picky Eating, Anti-bias Parenting, and many more!
Because this is a family program, other adults—grandparents, nannies, aunties, etc.– are welcome to attend and help fulfill these commitments. If Tuesday morning does not work for you, there are other Co-op Toddler classes on other days listed here.
