05 Jul FREE Tuition Now Available at Carkeek, Jefferson, & John C Little Parks
Our partnership with the Seattle Preschool Program – Pathway expands by 150%.
Last fall we piloted a partnership with the Seattle Preschool Program – Pathway to offer free tuition at Carkeek Park for families who don’t make a lot of money. Since our founding, Tiny Trees has been committed to supporting high quality public schools. By building a partnership with the Seattle Preschool Program we are able to offer a more accessible, affordable, and high quality education to all of our children. This first year has been a big success. With the help from the City 16 families were able to give their child a great education and a truly awesome childhood – one full of muddy wonder in the natural world.
Our partnership is now growing, to offer free tuition at Jefferson Park, and John C Little Park as well.
Here’s a list of our current openings:
A partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation
With extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, a pebbly beach full of hidden treasures and an active salmon stream, Carkeek Park is an ideal location for exploration and hands-on learning. Your adventurer will ramble through 220 acres of big mossy trees, get muddy and giggly in the hidden meadows, wetlands & beach, and search for salmon on the banks of Pipers Creek. At Carkeek Park, the majestic landscape is the third teacher – presenting ample opportunities to learn math and science concepts through the natural world.
In our awe-filled outdoor classroom, your young explorer will play with symbols, letters and ideas. They will play in a language rich environment with written words for the names of the trees, plants and creatures that make the forest home. And to explore the world of science, and test the possibilities of the natural world, your child will plan their own experiments and share what they have learned with classmates through daily plan – do – review sessions.
Looking for something unique and quirky? Enjoy the salmon slide! Or watch for trains chugging down the tracks from the locomotive viewing platform.
