Are you looking to ease your child’s transition to elementary school with a unique school option? Are you concerned about large class sizes and a one-size fits all approach to learning? Wishing there were a place where your child could learn to read, find joy in math, explore the world of science AND enjoy recess, art, and learning through play? Do you long for a community that shares these values? There is a place--the Village Cooperative School! Village Cooperative School just completed its inaugural year on the campus of South Seattle College. ● We offer a creative learning environment for 5 - 7 year olds with a low adult/child ratio. ● We operate Monday-Thursday from 10am-3pm with one day of education outside of the classroom – usually in nature. ● We teach core academics through a hands-on, multi-sensory, real world approach. ● We offer parent education and affordable tuition. If your family has considered joining our community, NOW is the time to be in touch. We need to hear from you by June 30th! Village Cooperative School

Village Cooperative School will not operate a session for 2014-2015. Unfortunately, low enrollment makes this venture financially unfeasible. The passion for many of the hallmarks of Village Cooperative School – a nurturing low-student/adult ratio, play-based academics, and weekly outdoor nature days – will continue to live on in our families. We wish you the best with your family’s education journey.

Hello Interested Parents! There has been a fair amount of interest in our cooperative kindergarten class for the 2015-16 school year--yipee!! We know you all have many questions about the class and we would love to give you an opportunity to come see the classroom, meet the teachers (both child and parent), get some information and ask any questions you might have. Please join us for an Open House on THURSDAY, MARCH 12TH from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at our classrooms at the South Seattle College campus. We will begin the info session at 7:00, but please come earlier to see the classrooms and meet us and each other. Our location is on the campus of South Seattle College, 6000 16th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98106. Park in north parking lot (you will need to purchase a parking ticket or park free on the street) and walk through the breezeway towards the middle of campus. Soon after the breezeway ends, you will see Rainier Hall on the left side. We are on the 2nd floor, rooms 201 and 202. Your child(ren) are welcome to come, but the information portion will be a bit dry for them. There will be a 12 year old watching any kids and supervising some table toys while we chat if any children come. Feel free to invite others to this event and spread the word! We look forward to meeting you! Wendy Eckert (teacher) and Jen Giomi (parent educator)
