Serving children and their families for over 50 years, we are among Seattle’s oldest cooperative preschools. Parents and teachers work together to enable young minds explore the world in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment. Our philosophy emphasizes socialization and play-based learning. Interaction with parent educators offers parents an opportunity to gain further insights to meet their children’s physical, intellectual and social/emotional needs.
Parents are an integral part of the success of QACP. We strive to create a community where both parents and children are supported through early childhood and beyond by the connections they have made with other co-op families.
Queen Anne Cooperative Preschool is one of seven local cooperative preschools affiliated with Seattle Central College. Learn more about Seattle Central Cooperative Preschools.
