At Latona Multi-Age Co-op we have interactive fun with our children, as well as learn and talk about Early Childhood Development topics. We are unique from other North Seattle College (NSC) sponsored co-ops because we combine age groups and meet only once a week. This allows siblings to be in the same class!
Latona Multi-Age Co-op is currently offered for summer session only.
A typical session begins with about 30 minutes of large motor play. Everyone then comes inside to wash their hands and we transition to inside play with art, sensory bin, dramatic play and snack stations. We practice child-led learning and children may move freely between whichever stations they choose. Every other week, a parent education instructor will walk around and talk with parents individually about topics of concern to them. If enough families are enrolled, half the parents will go to a separate room for group parent ed while the other half watch the floor. Parent Education is held in an adjoining room right down the hall from the preschool class, so if you worry about being away from your child, the door is always open for your child to come visit you and go back out in the classroom if he/she needs to.
The teacher will sing the clean up song and everyone will participate in putting things away.
In the last 30 minutes of class, we get back together in a closing circle for more singing, dancing, story time and good-byes for the evening.
We meet once a week on Wednesday.
