Broadview Co-Op offers many great things for children ages 1 to 5 years (not even mentioning the parent support, education, and social networking.) We offer a community but also experiential play based education, excellent child and parent support, age appropriate curriculum, outdoor gross motor activities as well as intricate activities to activate the imagination.
This fall Teacher Erin gave the 3-5’s class an adventure in natural science with a walking tour of Seattle’s Carkeek Park led by naturalist Julie Tubbs Luthy.
Julie has spent over 25 years educating children of all ages about the natural world, holding a Master’s Degree in Environmental and Science Education. Her enthusiasm for nature is contagious as you can see from the photos of our class, the children (and grownups) adored learning with Julie.
Julie was amazing at keeping the spider information both technical and age appropriate, while also keeping these little people engaged and active. It was a fun day, and we all became spider experts by the end of class.
The parents and families really make our cooperative preschool special, and when our teachers bring in experts in their field, we have nothing but fun together. Play based learning is exactly what you will find in our school.
Thank you again naturalist Julie and Teacher Erin for being such great leaders!
