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

Open House

Bring your future preschooler to our BPC open house! Check out our space and meet some of our current kids and families. Parents AND kids welcome. We will soon be opening up registration for our classes for next year, so our open house is a great opportunity to see if BPC is a good fit. (We even have some current spaces available for the remainder of this school year.)
