Important update

Latona, Northeast Toddlers, University Ravenna and On-Campus Infants have merged to form NorthLeaf Campus Cooperative Preschool. A preschool and learning community located at North Seattle College for children ages 3 months to Pre-K starting in 2021-2022.

About NorthLeaf Multiage Spanish

The early childhood years are filled with many exciting milestones. Children learn to move, talk, and actively explore and interpret the world around them. In our Multiage Spanish class, we foster a child’s natural ability to learn and grow through play, all while exposing them to Spanish language. Maestra Leonor provides a nurturing, stimulating, and safe environment for children and their families to grow through the early childhood years. The Multiage Spanish Class is for children who will be between the ages of 3 months and 3 years by August 31 of the year they attend the preschool.

Our Schedule

The daily schedule includes outdoor large motor play, circle time, snack, free play / parent education, and closing circle. Our classroom has areas for art activities, a sensory table, home center play, block area play, fine motor manipulative play, and gross motor active play (both indoors and outdoors). At circle time we sing songs, play with puppets, the flannel board, musical instruments, and dance. After circle, we break into two groups: half of the parents meet with the parent educator to discuss parenting issues and concerns, while the other half works at various “stations” with the children.

Our Teacher

Leonor Lopez is Colombian and has been working as a teacher for more than 20 years. She has a bachelor’s degree and specialization in education. She is passionate about working with children and seeing the world through them. She arrived in Seattle in 2014 and since 2015 has worked in cooperative preschools developing curriculum based on play and immersion in Spanish. For Leonor, cooperatives are the ideal school environment as they allow integral work with families. This has motivated her to continue her training, acquiring certifications as a Parent Educator and Positive Discipline Teacher for Early Childhood in Washington State.

Parent Involvement

Parents must attend parent meetings twice a quarter (scheduled in the evenings), which focus on parenting and child development issues as well as co-op business. Also, as the co-op is run by parents, parents are expected to hold a committee position. Families may attend a day and evening or Saturday class if they wish.

Fees (for 2021-2022)

The fee structure is outlined below. You pay monthly tuition for your child to attend co-op and you also pay a quarterly tuition (three times per year) to North Seattle College for your parent education portion.

  • There is a non-refundable registration fee of $35.
  • Monthly child’s tuition to the co-op is $60 per month.
  • NSC registration/tuition for one parent is currently $56.38 per quarter for three credits.
  • If you choose to park a vehicle on campus, parking permits are $50 per quarter.

If costs are prohibitive for your family, scholarships may be applied for through our Parent Advisory Committee. See Scholarship Information.
