About Our Preschool
Meadowbrook Cooperative Preschool is a not-for-profit school providing quality education to children aged two to five years old. We are a warm and welcoming organization offering three classes: Pre-3s, 3-5s, and Pre-K. Our emphasis is on trusting children to learn when presented with age appropriate, interesting and diverse experiences and allowing them to find their place in a safe and stimulating environment. Our large classroom is bright and airy with two lofts and an open feel. We also have a large outdoor play area that includes a grassy hill and natural play area, climbing equipment, paved space for balls and tricycles, and a large sandbox. Meadowbrook Co-op is part of North Seattle Community College Cooperative Preschools (NSC).
Children in Meadowbrook's classes spend most of their time at school engaged in play. This is the work of children. Play nurtures every aspect of a young, developing mind and body. Through play, children explore and build tools for navigating language and society, while feeding their physical and emotional intelligence, promoting self-esteem and confidence, and developing creative and independent thinkers, with respect of the child's own uniqueness and style.
Teachers create an environment that supports, challenges, and expands this play. Children are encouraged to work together through negotiation and cooperation, teaching the value of teamwork, building social skills and creating a sense of community.
Each class comes together to share snacks and circle times with teacher led singing, dancing, games, and stories. Together the teachers and parents ensure a safe space for emotional and physical exploration and building language, social, and pre-academic skills.
We do allow "babes in arms" in our pre-3's and 3-5's classes. Newborn infants up to six months of age are allowed to attend class with the enrolled parent. Please inquire for more details.
We still have openings for the coming 2018-2019 school year in our Pre-3s class and are maintaining a short wait-list for our 3-5s class. Registration is on-going throughout the summer.
