Welcome to our vibrant community

for families with children ages 1 through 5

Lincoln Park Cooperative Preschool

Just blocks from the Ferry Dock, we really are your West Side preschool!  Located in the old Fauntleroy Schoolhouse there is nothing old about us–families with young kids feel so comfortable in our cozy, window-filled room that looks out onto our outdoor playground.  Lincoln Park kids get to do the creative, intriguing activities that stimulate their curiosities and support their growing brains–and they get support and practice in learning how to make and keep good friends.  Our graduates are so skilled and ready to enter the big world of kindergarten!

Come say hello and visit our welcoming preschool–drive around and enter on the Director St (north) entrance.  Park on the street or in our lot.  We are a secure building so ring the bell.

Preschool for your child…Parent community for you

What We Provide…

Our preschool teachers provide a rich environment full of learning activities that are just right for the developmental stage of your child. Our specialty is helping children learn the joy of discovery through play and guided learning interactions where they:

  • explain scientific discoveries like why drops of color make tunnels in ice…
  • solve social predicaments like who gets to serve the pretend pizza first…
  • resolve potential emotional hurdles like how to practice self control when feeling frustrated

How Parents Help…

Because parents get to assist in the classroom one day each week and the adult-child ratio is so high, the choice of learning centers to explore is wide and opportunities for critical thinking and social problem-solving are great.

Check the Parents tab for more information about Parent Involvement.


Our curriculum is aligned with WaKIDS, Washington State Kindergarten Entrance Guidelines and supports:

  • Family connection
  • Whole child assessment for individualized learning
  • Supporting smooth transition into Kindergarten
