My son and I started attending co-op preschool in September and we love it. Our class is really small and we have space available - so I was selfishly thinking, "Wouldn't it be wonderful to draw in more AP families?" So far, it's been a very nurturing, supportive community. But, I'd love knowing there were more families still bf'ing or cosleeping. And, it'd be great to create a majority that practices gentle discipline.
Our school is wonderful and, as an AP mama myself, I LOVE our teacher! She's very into emergent curriculum. The kids aren't pushed into activities they aren't interested in. It's all very play-centered and focuses on social skills and imagination.
If you're interested, let me know. I'm the parent coordinator for the pre-3 class this year and can schedule a tour for you. We're in the North Ballard / Crown Hill neighborhood and you can find us on the internet by searching for Ingraham Cooperative Preschool.
