CSPS is taking COVID very seriously

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

Since COVID, our families have done their best to follow the current Washington State Coronavirus Response. The Staff and Board at CSPS along with Shoreline Community College are monitoring COVID-19 closely. The health and safety of our preschool children and their families remain a top priority. We appreciate the continued respect of others by our preschool families by staying home when sick. We want to stay in-person to enjoy our indoor activity rooms as well as continuing our outdoor activities!

Parent Involvement

Cooperative Preschool = Parent Involvement

Parents are involved at Crystal Springs Co-op Preschool in several ways.

Participating Parent

A parent (or other guardians such as a nanny, grandparent, or aunt) stays at the preschool on the same day each week to help with activities, engage 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. The rotating schedule will get worked out before school starts 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 a grandparent (if you are unavailable but your child can still attend the class). As per our handbook, if it is another class parent, then you must work out if you will pay them $20 or switch days.

Parent Education

The Participating Parent is required to participate in 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 on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7 PM (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 to 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, you speak up and ask for help or guidance.

Sign-ups for the 2023-2024 school year will happen online on May 20th. If you enroll after our sign-up event, the CSPS Vice Chair will contact you after enrollment is complete to find a Preschool Committee (job) that works for you.

View the 2022-2023 Preschool Committees Jobs (this will be updated prior to the sign-up event)

(Note: The health and safety of each participant in the cooperative preschool are 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 (SCC). 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!

At time of enrollment, along with your $100 registration fee, you will need to pay one-quarter of SCC's tuition. CSPS will cover the remaining SCC quarters' tuition. SCC tuition amount is based on class enrolled: $44 = Toddler, 2Day, Multi-Age  |  $66 = 3Day, PreK (Note: both the registration fee & SCC tuition are non-refundable).
