WWCC Parent Cooperative Preschool
Walla Walla Community College Parent Education Program offers several Parent Cooperative Preschool classes for parents and children who are three to five years old.
The Parent Co-op provides a strong, developmental curriculum. Both parents and children learn best by doing. Learning requires active thinking and first-hand investigation. Parents and children ask questions and explore answers, seeing themselves as problem solvers, discoverers and inventors.
The Parent Co-op Preschool offers enriched play experiences that help children develop the skills needed for success in school and in life. Parents are the primary teachers of their children, and parent involvement in these experiences is crucial. Children attend preschool two or three days a week, and parents work in the classroom approximately once a week.
Parents are able to gather together to learn skills to build strong and healthy families during the monthly parent meetings. Parents work with the parent educator to learn about child development and behavior, family relationships, healthy habits and home management. Parents also work with the teacher and each other to attend to the business of running the preschool.
There are several programs available, both on the WWCC campus and in locations in the community.
