The early childhood years are filled with many exciting milestones. Children learn to move, talk, and actively explore and interpret the world around them. At NorthLeaf we foster a child’s natural ability to learn and grow through play. Our wonderful teachers, sunlit classrooms, and spacious outdoor play areas provide a nurturing, stimulating, and safe environment for children and their families to grow through the early childhood years.

The name NorthLeaf Campus Cooperative Preschool came about in 2021 after the merger of four amazing and long-standing cooperative preschool programs – Northeast Seattle Toddlers (NEST), Latona, University-Ravenna (U-Ravenna), and On-Campus Infants. Our new name comes from our proximity to the Northgate and Maple Leaf neighborhoods in North Seattle and our location on the North Seattle College campus.

NorthLeaf Campus Cooperative Preschool is a cooperative preschool located on the North Seattle College campus. As the heart of the North Seattle Cooperative Preschool Program, our classes attract families from all over Seattle, near and far. We are located a few minutes from the Northgate, Greenwood, and Maple Leaf neighborhoods and within easy reach of the I-5 and the Northgate light rail station for those further away.

NorthLeaf works to facilitate a community of children who are free to wonder, discover, and experience. Our indoor classrooms, with their many windows and high ceilings, give children the room to spread their wings and expand their minds. Our multiple outdoor classrooms help our children grow their bodies and imaginations. Our play-based curriculum allows the innate playful nature of children to be the guide in the process of learning. We strive to cultivate classes that honor diversity by providing a warm, inclusive environment in which children can grow physically, emotionally, and creatively.
