Current School Year Enrollment

  You can still enroll for the 2021-2022 School Year!  


 This page was last updated on 11/15/2021 

CSPS learned a lot from our 2020-2021 school year and are continuing to work hard with Shoreline Community College and our families to create a safe re-entry to our wonderful in-person and outdoor program for the 2021-2022 school year. We have many guidelines to follow from the CDC and from Shoreline Community College. Our staff, board members, and families have been and continues to work hard to make this school year as normal as we can. We appreciate the flexibility of our families, as there continues to be many moving parts to this process. We are excited to be able to be in-person this year as well as continue our outdoor activities that we have come to love over the past year.

CSPS is taking COVID very seriously

Keeping our staff and families healthy & safe is our top priority

Last school year (2020-2021) each family did their best to follow the current Washington State Guidelines as outlined by Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Initiative. This included (but is not limited to) guidance on public face coverings, recreation, gatherings, and travel recognizing that guidelines may change. Current guidelines can be found at

This current school year (2021-2022) CSPS families are required to sign COVID-19 forms prior to starting school.

CSPS COVID-19 Protocols

CSPS COVID-19 Community Standards


Parent Involvement

Cooperative Preschool = Parent Involvement

Parents are involved at Crystal Springs Co-op Preschool in a number of ways.

Participating Parent

A parent (or other guardian such as nanny, grandparent, aunt) stays at the preschool on the same day each week to help with activities, engaging with children, and set-up/clean-up. Participating Parent expectations for each class are based on the size, needs and health restrictions. The Class Coordinator will work with you to figure out the best day that works within your family needs and the needs of the class.

If there is a day that you cannot stay (sick, work conflict, travel, etc.) it is your responsibility to find someone to attend in your place. This could be another class parent, your child's other parent or grandparent (if say you are sick but your child can still attend class). If it is another class parent, as per our handbook, you and the other parent must work out if you will pay them $20 to cover your day or if you will switch days.

Parent Education

Parents are required to participate in their parent education discussion group every other week. Parent Ed is held over zoom every other week at different days/times depending on the class.

Parent Seminars

These informative nights are typically held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7PM (exact date/time may vary) over Zoom. Most months, the Parent Seminars include a class meeting, a full school meeting, and a speaker discussing a topic that will help add another tool into your parenting toolbox. These Parent Seminars are required to attend (Toddler Class parents are only required to attend 3 of the months) with one unexcused absence.

Preschool Committee (Job)

Each family is required to choose or be assigned to a Preschool Committee (job) or serve on the CSPS Board. You should expect to spend an average of four hours per month depending on the committee. Some committees require less time and others require more. We ask that if you find your committee assignment to no longer be a good match for you or your family that you speak up and ask for help or guidance.

Sign-ups for the 2021-2022 school year happened on Friday, May 28th through an online sign-up form. If you enroll after May 28th, the CSPS Vice Chair will contact you after enrollment is complete to find a Preschool Committee (job) that works for you.

2021-2022 Preschool Committees (jobs) -- The health and safety of each participant in the cooperative preschool is of utmost importance. Thus committee job responsibilities are subject to change based on Shoreline Community College, CDC, or state safety guidelines..

As an alternative to serving on a committee, you can opt out for an annual fee of $500 (CSPS is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization). The availability of this option may vary by number of families enrolled in the program.


Connection to Shoreline Community College

CSPS has sister co-op preschools

When you enroll at CSPS you also enroll as a student at Shoreline Community College. There is no additional fee for you as it is already included in your monthly CSPS tuition. We are under SCC's Parenting Education Program with our sister co-ops in the area. As a SCC student, you will earn college credit for each class quarter you attend CSPS (some people use them towards a degree or on their resume, others do nothing with the credits). You can also take advantage of student discounts and other perks!


Enrichment at CSPS

Making connections to our world outside

CSPS knows that learning about and being apart of a great community helps develop caring citizens.



Before COVID, our preschool classes visited and were visited by fantastic organizations in the area, such as:

  • Fire Department

  • NSD Bus Barn

  • Metro Bus

  • WA State Troopers

  • The Reptile Zoo

  • The Woodland Park Zoo

  • Pumpkin Patches/Farms (we went in person this fall 2021)

  • Central Market

During COVID, we have Zoomed with excellent programs and have been able to "visit" places we never thought possible, such as:

  • The Seattle Opera

  • The Monterey Bay Aquarium

  • Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

  • The Burke Museum

  • The Tooth Fairy Experience

  • Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve

Community Connections

CSPS families have always tried to give back to the community and this seemed even more important this last year. Our Sunshine Committee worked hard to find ways that our preschoolers could participate and learn how their small effort makes a big impact. Visit our Community Connections page for more details.
