Parent Education

Parent Education

Spokane Falls Community College manages the Parent Cooperative Preschools in Spokane and the Greater Spokane area under the Organization of Parenting Education Programs of Washington State (OPEP.) 

OPEP’s Mission: Washington State Community and Technical College Parenting Education builds stronger and healthier families through adult and adult-child learning environments. 

The wonderful and unique experience of Parent Cooperative Preschools is centered in family involvement, with the support of experts in the field of Early Childhood Education. While children attend cooperative preschool, parents participate in classroom learning, parenting educational seminars and have opportunities to support the administration of the non-profit cooperative preschool with whom they are enrolled. When parents are involved in their children’s learning, children are more successful in school and relationships. 

Cooperative Preschool Parents say:

  • "It has been so great joining this community & getting more support as a parent. Thank you!"
  • "Co-op has been a fantastic fit for our family! I love the style of teaching and focus on whole child development & learning."
  • "Warm and inviting environment! My child looks forward to their time spent in class and I enjoy the community feel with the other parents."
