2Day, 3Day & PreK

We, here at Crystal Springs Co-op, welcome you to preschool. We work hard everyday to make sure that our families feel that they are a part of an environment that supports learning, playing and friendships.  I have been with Crystal Springs Co-op for many years not only as a teacher but as a parent. I love teaching here. It has been and continues to be a wonderful experience for me and my family. I hope that you will come join in the fun!

Jeannette Green
Early Education Specialist
Toddler & Multi-Age

Hello! I am passionate about supporting child development and relationships while empowering families to carve their own unique parenting path. I have a MA in Education from Lesley University and a BA in Vocal Performance and Music Education from UW. Outside of work, you can find me playing with my kids, singing and playing many music instruments, dancing and doing Zumba, wearing crazy leggings, and going on adventures around town.

Karen Gunderson
Outdoor Curriculum Specialist

Let's go outside! Outdoor play has always been important at CSPS. Especially for a child, there is no substitute for real interaction with nature, physical activity, and the tactile and sensory experiences provided by an outdoor adventure. As the parent of a teenage son and a teacher of students of all ages, I understand the increasing importance (in our technology-driven culture) of outdoor experiences for child development, including hands-on, physical activities. Every day is a new adventure in our outdoor classroom!

Rain or Shine we head outside!
