Val Donato Award

Nominations due May 6th

It is time to recognize the excellent Parent Education Instructors we have in our program by nominating your current or former instructor for this award given annually. This year the committee will make one award.

This award was established in 2007 in honor of Val Donato who passed away in 2013 after having contributed 30+ years of service to parents and families in the cooperative preschool system. The award of $500 is awarded at the end of the school year to an outstanding Parent Education Instructor in the North Seattle Community College system.

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.
