Who We Are

How to Join a Co-op:

  1. Find out how co-ops work.
  2. Decide which schools might be right for your family.
  3. Understand the enrollment process
  4. Contact the parent co-ordinator to take the next step.

NSC's Co-operative Preschools:

Provide parent and early education for families with children from infancy to Pre-K.

Schools are located in North Seattle and differ from traditional preschools in that they are run by parents who work in association with the class teacher and the North Seattle College program.

The preschools are very popular and provide a community of support for children and their families.

If there is any information you need that you cannot find on the website please contact Betty Williams the program co-ordinator.
