Our curriculum is primarily based on the children’s interests. Many times our themes may be extended or shortened based on the dynamics and interest level of the class. We offer plenty of time for sustained play and social interactions that provide rich opportunities for intellectual and personal growth. As children display an interest in and readiness for focused work on letters and numbers, we are ready with interesting and challenging activities. We often ask families to share things from home that enhance our theme at school. The children are able to connect home and school and realize that learning happens everywhere! Having parents working in the classroom and being part of their children’s learning community is so tremendously valuable. Mt Baker Co-op Preschool is a nurturing place where everyone can teach, learn, and develop lifelong friendships.

Helping children develop social-emotional skills; including making friends, managing emotions, and solving problems is important in preschool, and we use the fun, interactive Second Step© curriculum as a guide. In addition, we offer time to practice these skills through sustained play each day. Social interactions provide rich opportunities for both intellectual and personal growth.
