Attending Multiple North Seattle College (NSC) Co-ops:

As a reminder, while you may apply to multiple programs, you may only be enrolled in one daytime NSC parent education program per child (the only exception to this policy is for the NSC evening parent education programs).

TOURING:

Preschool Tours:

Everyone applying to the Preschool must tour.

The only exception is those who have another child who has been through this particular Woodland Park class previously (example: your younger child is applying for the 3s class and you have an older child who has already attended the Woodland Park 3s class).

To schedule a tour please email the appropriate Parent Coordinator:

Tours occur during regular class time, but are by appointment only and must be arranged in advance.

We ask that you do not bring your child(ren) as the school’s insurance only covers enrolled students. However, children under one year of age in arms/carriers can be arranged ahead of time – please email the Parent Coordinator to inquire.
