- Encourage families to share their unique talents, interests, and experiences in ways that enhance their child’s class, as well as the larger preschool community
- Provide opportunities for parents to participate in their child’s first educational experience, working closely with teachers, parent educators, and each other to learn about child development and behavior, as well as parenting
- Develop and strengthen skills in group process, mediation, and leadership
- Foster a sense of community, support, and belonging for all those involved in the preschool
Welcome, Teacher Adelle!
Welcome, Adelle McKee as the new Pre-K teacher! Adelle has spent several years working with Spokane Public Schools as a Designed Instruction Para Pro. She was responsible for designing curriculum, tracking progress of students, supervising groups of students, and collaborating with parents and staff.

2020-2021 school year
Our 2020/2021 school year is online with a newly created enhanced virtual preschool program called Online+. Our combined Infant’s/Toddler’s class will have a more Parent Education focus with some parent-led circle times. While our Twos, Threes, and PreK classes will have multiple virtual circle times each week led by our teachers and Parent Educators. They will lead our kiddos through songs, stories, movement, play, and stimulating hands-on activities. We will be using Zoom as our virtual platform throughout the year.
We are asking our PNPC families to be patient with us and flexible as we move through the year, as we expect potential changes to occur. Our hope is to continue to grow our PNPC community as we move through the different phases of COVID-19. We expect to remain completely virtual while in phase 2, with each class scheduling in-person outside playground time. When we enter phase 3, we will discuss more in-person options.
