The Staff and Board at CSPS along with Shoreline Community College will be monitoring COVID-19 closely as we plan for the 2022-2023 school year. We will follow the many guidelines from the CDC and from Shoreline Community College, however, we know there will be many updates and changes to these guidelines as we get closer to the new school year. We appreciate the flexibility of our families, as there are many moving parts to this process. We anticipate being in-person again next school year enjoying both our indoor activity rooms as well as continuing our outdoor activities!

CSPS is taking COVID very seriously

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

Our current families are all doing their best to follow the current Washington State Coronavirus Response. This current school year (2021-2022) CSPS families are required to sign CSPS COVID-19 forms prior to attending school. With the 2022-2023 school year being many months away, we don't know what the guidelines will be at that time, however, we do anticipate we will have a version of these forms ready for families as at the start of the school year. 

CSPS 2021-22 COVID-19 Protocols

CSPS 2021-22 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. The individual classes will set forth the Participating Parent expectations based on the size, needs and health restrictions during the Class Orientation Night. The rotating schedule will get work out prior to school starting with the help of the Class Coordinator. 

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 you are unavailable 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 every other week during class time.

Parent Seminars

These informative nights are typically held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7PM (exact date/time may vary). 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.​ We are anticipating these meetings will be held over Zoom.

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 2022-2023 school year happened late May 2022 - details will be provided closer to that time. If you enroll after May, the CSPS Vice Chair will contact you after enrollment is complete to find a Preschool Committee (job) that works for you.

You can view the 2021-2022 Preschool Committees (jobs) to get a good idea of what jobs may be available to sign up for for the 2022-2023 school year. This list of jobs and their descriptions will be updated and made available prior to the sign-up event. (Note: 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 to the Pumpkin Patch in October 2021 😄

  • Central Market

Since 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 seems even more important now. Our Sunshine Committee works hard to find ways that our preschoolers can participate and learn how their small effort makes a big impact. Visit our Community Connections page for more details.
