Come Work with Us!

Broadview Cooperative Preschool is looking for a caring, creative and enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about cooperative education to lead our 3-5s and PreK classes!

We have indoor and outdoor classroom spaces and we also offer Toddlers and Pre3s classes that culminate in our 3-5s and PreK classes.

We believe that kids learn best during the act of playing freely; Real, unstructured, freely chosen play.

Our North Seattle location has afforded us with exceptional field trip opportunities to Carkeek park and Ida Culver Broadview (an independent and assisted living community).

We trust and empower our kids with the ability to make sense of the world, while learning about themselves, their friends, and the adults working alongside them.

As a cooperative school, our teachers’ role is dual as they provide an environment for children to grow emotionally, intellectually, socially, and physically while also providing the parents with direction and serving as a model for working with young children.

Another wonderful Spring Carnival has come and gone! Our annual Spring Carnival was held on May 5 this year and a great time was had by all.

Thank you to all who came and helped us raise funds to support our school’s scholarship fund. We have a fantastic community at Broadview, and it’s so touching to see how supportive we are of each other and the preschool! Thank you to all of the preschool parent volunteers who helped with setup, running the booths and then taking everything down again!

With lots of great games and activities, there were a lot of happy, smiling kids running around having lots of fun!

The band, Strum Drum Daddy, delighted carnival goers young and old with their incredibly catchy songs. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and time!

Thank you so much to our generous supporters! Our silent auction and raffle was a great success, and I know we had a lot of happy winners and high bidders afterward.

2017 Sponsors

The Spring Carnival would never have happened without the incredible dedication of our carnival committee: Laura, Trisha, Anjani, Sunny, Carly, Karey and Christina. Thank you so much for all of your hard work to make this year’s carnival the best one ever!
