I want to let the community know that we have a few pre-school spots left at King Street Cooperative, beginning this fall. This co-op preschool has been operating in the Central District for over 30 years. I have been a parent at King Street for the past 4 years and next year I will have the opportunity to be one of the three dedicated, passionate teachers there. Yes, it’s that great!
2 spots for 2-3.5yrs Tuesdays & Mondays or Fridays
2 spots for 3.5-5yrs Wednesdays & Mondays &/or Fridays
School runs 10-1pm. We’re located off Jackson & 18th. Working Shifts are roughly 1:3 days attended.
WHAT WE BELIEVE: Our program is centered around 5 key philosophical pillars: Child Centered, Family Friendly, Play Based, Problem Solving and Anti-Bias. Our school motto is SAFE, STRONG AND FREE!
A child-centered, play-based, anti-bias curriculum gives our children the freedom to explore and understand themselves and others, and is vital in preparing for school and life. This approach gives children the tools to resolve conflict, interact socially, and work cooperatively. We also believe in multi-age preschool, and as such enroll children ages 2 through 5 to explore preschool together.
Family friendly means that plus one siblings are welcome when parents are doing their working shifts, families become support systems for one another outside of school, families learn together about child development and share parenting skills.
