North Seattle Fives Cooperative School (5515 Phinney Avenue North, across from the zoo) will be holding an Open House this Saturday, January 23rd from 1 – 2 p.m.
North Seattle Fives is a pre-K program designed to meet the needs of children who are too young for kindergarten or who would benefit from another year before starting kindergarten.
Class meets Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Monthly tuition is approximately $280 per child and parents participate in the classroom one day per week.
According to North Seattle Fives board members, the gender-balanced classroom provides a stimulating and emotionally supportive environment for the children.
“Teacher Aaron, easy-going and inventive, brings a ukulele to circle time. Attendees can meet him and parents of the current class at the open house to learn more,” says North Fives Secretary Lindsey.
Admission is determined by a lottery in February. Priority registration is given to children turning 5 before December 31, 2016, but children turning 5 before March 31, 2017 are encouraged to apply. Deadline for registration is Saturday, February 13.
