About our Infants Class

Caregivers (moms, dads, grandparents, nannies, and au pairs) participate in every class by playing with their infant and socializing with other students and caregivers. Our classroom is a calm, nurturing environment where children explore freely. We offer developmentally appropriate toys, books and sensory materials for your infants to discover.

Parent education is offered during our Infants classes. Discussions focus on daily routines, sleep, nutrition, temperaments, parenting styles, and many other topics. A parent educator is there to answer questions and help parents feel confident in being the best parent they want to be. Caregivers also find support as they share with others who are going through similar milestones.

Parent Role

Parents and caregivers play an important role in our school. They act as classroom assistant teachers every week and hold a school job to help run the co-op (everything from School President to Laundry Committee to Events Committee). Class meetings with both social time and parent education take place monthly in the evening.​ Family participation provides a high adult-to-child ratio, lower cost than other preschool models, and a strong community. The model creates not only a rich learning environment for children but also supports families in their parenting journey.​


Full parent responsibilities can be found on our Registration page. More about the co-op model can be found on our What is Co-op? page and on the North Seattle Co-op's website​.
