Wave of the Future Coop started as a pandemic- era pod for local families in Seaview, WA, tucked between the woods and sea. Focused on education, community, craft, and environment, Wave of the Future offers a Covid- conscious community, small staff to child ratios, and a focus on learning outdoors through a child- led, play- based lens. We are passionate about connecting children to the outdoors, having a connection to food, and melding traditional skills with modern resources. 


Starting Tuesday, September 7. Monday-Friday 8am- 3pm. We also offer additional hours on Monday and Friday from 3- 5pm. Currently we have ‘preschool’ aged kids (30 month and up, who are not required to be enrolled in school) in our preschool aged program. We ask that all children are potty trained before applying. 
Tuesday-Thursday, April 12-June 9th 4-6PM for youth ages 7 and up. 
The Saturday Workshop Series meets on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. A multi-generational class, Saturday workshops are open to both adults and youth. We ask that children under 12 are accompanied by an adult. 


We are asking parents to provide lunch. We will provide organic snacks.
