The Woodland Park cooperative community of schools includes a Pre 3’s, 3’s, and 4-5’s program and summer program in the heart of the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. Our programs are best described as play-based, starting with the premise that children learn best when given the opportunity to freely engage with the world around them, pursuing their own passions and curiosities in a community setting.
All classes and programs are lead by Teacher Tom Hobson. Tom has been Woodland Park’s teacher since 2002. He creates a classroom environment full of innovative, original activities that allow the children to explore and learn at their own pace. Teacher Tom believes school should be a place for children to prepare themselves for the bigger world by experimenting with friendships and society, exploring emotions, and ultimately discovering her or his own power within the community.
