Sad and happy news

An immense thank you to all of our community; to those that purchased food, adult beverages, or tubs of cookie dough from our various fundraisers, to those of you that attended a Spring Carnival, to enrolled families of the past and present, and to everyone who supported our wonderful preschool in countless other ways. Because of you Broadview Cooperative Preschool has been able to teach and support children and families in our neighborhood and beyond. 

Sadly, the many challenges of the past year and the additional barriers we continue to face have hit our preschool hard and the difficult decision has been made to close Broadview Co-op. Our school year ends on 5/21/21. 

However, there is a silver lining and a great partnership has been made! Broadview Co-op will merge with Meadowbrook Cooperative Preschool for the school year beginning in September 2021. Our current families are able to seamlessly transfer to the supportive and enriching program available at Meadowbrook Co-op. And there is room for new families to join, too.

Please check out the offerings at Meadowbrook Co-op and enroll your child today!

In-person learning is here

Broadview Cooperative Preschool is now providing safe in-person learning and play opportunities. School wide playdates are available once weekly in our sizable parking lot complete with sanitized ride on toys, balls, and playground equipment. Strict COVID safety measures are taken including electronic sign-ins and temperature checks on site. Children age 3 years and older are encouraged to wear a face covering. All adults comply with social distancing and face covering guidelines.

In addition, our 3-5’s class meets once weekly in the parking lot for specific lessons geared toward their needs and development.

Openings remain in all classes. Enroll today. A 25% tuition reduction continues while King County is in Phase 2.

In person learning coming soon

Good news for preschoolers and their grown ups: more learning options are starting soon at Broadview Cooperative Preschool.

We know that preschoolers don’t learn best by watching screens. In person interaction helps preschoolers’ brains learn and grow and helps develop critical social skills. For families desperately seeking this kind of learning our school will soon add the following optional sessions to our already robust virtual learning programs. 

New opportunities coming soon include:

  • School wide outside play dates once weekly
  • In-person outdoors class once weekly for our 3-5’s students  

Broadview Co-op Preschool is following strict COVID-19 safety measures. 

Openings remain for all ages. Enroll now.

Fall 2020 school year at Broadview Co-op

Because the health and safety of our students, parents, and teachers come first Broadview Co-op has made the difficult decision to provide remote only learning for all our classes during Phase 2 of the Governor’s Safe Start Washington Plan. Even during these difficult times our teachers will continue to work hard to support our student’s learning and enrichment and our robust network of Parent Educators will provide ongoing collaboration and resources for our parents and caregivers.

Students and parents will see several other changes this year including combining the Toddlers and Pre 3’s class, a new teacher helping with 3-5’s instruction, scheduling changes, and a reduced tuition option. Classes are scheduled to begin on Monday, September 14th and there are openings in all levels. Please review the page for each class for specific details.

School leaders are already making plans for instruction during Phase 3 of Safe Start Washington.

Black Lives Matter

Broadview Cooperative Preschool believes that Black Lives Matter, Black Preschool Lives Matter, and we denounce racism in all its forms. To be silent is to be complicit. We will do the work to better understand the deep and enduring impacts of racism and privilege and the actions that Broadview Cooperative Preschool can take to overcome them. We will be humble, listen, and strive to always be better.

COVID-19 and 2020-21 School Year

Right now we are living in unprecedented and challenging times. Now more than ever it has become all the more important for us to come together and form a loving community for our children. Even though in this uncertain and ever changing times making decisions is difficult, but we want to assure you all that we are working to build on innovative ways to support your child’s development and fostering relationships and sense of community among co-op families.

While it is still unclear what guidance and restrictions from public health agencies may be in place this fall, we are looking at these different scenarios.

  • Stay Home/Phase 1 or 2– Remote learning only
  • Phase 3 or 4 with Seattle Public Schools in limited or no in-person school– hybrid with remote and some in-person preschool
  • Phase 4 and Seattle Public Schools in normal session – in-person school, with possible remote learning for families who need it

We are closely watching Public Health guidelines and our All School Board is developing site specific details as needed. Broadview Co-op already has in place policies for parents and children who are sick to stay home and hand-washing of parents and children is built into our co-op schedules. As always, the health and safety of your children, yourself and your families will be our highest priority.
