Our space belongs to our children. With all their senses, they are learning through play. Throughout the school there is an explosion of discovery, learning, language and joy.
You will see kids in the art room with purple and green faces and rainbow colored fingers. You will see kids outside building and digging in the giant sandbox or splashing and wading in the river. You will see kids with muddy bare feet and shaving cream in their ears and bellybuttons. Rubber boots are the recommended footwear here. We are not afraid of cold, wet, or snowy weather.
You will see kids playing and exploring in an outdoor playhouse and barn, outdoor play structures, outdoor theater, and several indoor play structures, including an enormous tree house with a spiral tube slide, built by one of our amazing parents. You'll see kids hand-cranking homemade ice cream, grinding wheat and kneading homemade play dough, or having a snack with a friend in the preschool's kitchen. You might see fairy princesses dancing with streamers in the circle room, or a wonderful wizard casting spells in the hall. You will see kids making playdough pastries in the bakery and building wooden airplanes in the workshop. Burien Co-op is a great place to be a kid!
