West Seattle schools: New home for Lincoln Park Co-op Preschool

After many years at Seaview Methodist Church, Lincoln Park Cooperative Preschool decided to seek a new home – and has just announced it has found one for next school year: The Fauntleroy Schoolhouse. The schoolhouse at 9131 California SW, you’ll recall, is in its first year of a new life as a nonprofit-owned-and-operated community facility, and is continuing to add new tenants; this is the latest one. Lincoln Park is part of the South Seattle Community College cooperative-preschool family, with a format that includes parents working in the classroom one day a week. It offers classes for ages 1-5, and has a few openings – e-mail Judy at jkatalki@aol.com.

    Can’t wait to see the inside. We love Lincoln Park Co-op and the teachers for all of their effort to find us a new spot.

    Congrats! As a coop parent myself, I’m really excited for the opportunities that come with a new space, and what a great building!

    Very exciting news. As a former co-op parent, I learned such valuable information about parenting. I know it is helping me to raise responsible, caring individuals. And I think I may have made many friends for life.

    So great to hear! I just finished my 6th year of Co-op. It’s an amazing program that will thrive in this great space. The Fauntleroy schoolhouse is a neighborhood gem that we need to keep alive with reliable tenants. Nice job Co-op Preschool!

    I’m so excited that Lincoln Park has found a new home! The preschool co-ops here in West Seattle are fabulous and it’s wonderful that the families near the Fauntleroy schoolhouse can take part!

    My daughters are 10 and 12, and we still talk about their Lincoln Park co-op days–and some of the other parents and kids continue to be very close friends. The Parent Instruction classes made us better parents. Yay for Lincoln Park!

    I am a better parent due to my wonderful experience in the cooperative preschool program. The parent education seminars, advice, discussion time were invaluable to me and my husband. The preschool experience was enriching and gave my kids a good start in “school life.” I’m so excited that Lincoln Park has found a new home.

    Wow! Sounds like an awesome new location–I’m so glad. Three children=9 years in co-op preschools, including a precious year at Lincoln Park. Co-op is not just preschool, it is community, valuable parenting education, friendships for life, and a joyful, loving place for children to learn.

    Hurray – another location! For those of you who haven’t heard – this co-op preschool is AMAZING! I don’t know what we would’ve done without it. It taught us concrete skills on parenting with good classes, modeling in the classroom, handouts, and an instant community of good parents. We learned how to competently interact with young children (ours and others), taught us positive discipline, and even taught us songs to sing with our young ones. I highly recommend it!
