“No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness, and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.”          Emma Goldman

Each class is taught by a team of skilled teachers:

Your child’s teacher–hired by each individual school.    All of our teachers provide developmentally appropriate preschools, aligned with guidelines from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, based on the Creative Curriculum, utilizing Positive Discipline, and supporting Washington State Early Learning Guidelines.  See individual preschool websites for personal bios.

Your parenting educator–from South Seattle College.  All of our instructors are skilled in the Adlerian Positive Discipline guidance philosophy that encourages parents to be both kind and firm, to take into account what each child brings to the world, to use tools that are effective for the long term, to raise children who are capable contributors to home, school, and the larger community.
