About our 3/4s Class

The 3/4s program provides opportunities for creative and imaginative play. Students engage in open-ended art projects, pretend play, block construction, sensory table play, story-telling and dramatization, concrete investigation of science and math concepts, and various types of manipulative activities. We encourage the children to share ideas, thoughts, and questions in small and large groups. These activities build confidence, self-esteem, and group cohesion.

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​.
