Ballard Preschool Co-op

Our Mission

Our co-op aims to provide a part-time structured cooperative program designed to encourage the social, emotional, physical, and mental development of young children. It is also intended to be a resource and nucleus of support for participating families.

Our Goals

  • Create an environment that encourages the development of young children through creative play
  • Nurture each child’s sense of accomplishment
  • Encourage families to share their unique stories in ways that enhance their child’s class as well as the larger preschool community
  • Provide opportunities for parents to work closely with teachers and each other to learn about child development
  • Foster a sense of community, support, and belonging for all those involved in the preschool
