Learning Together Through Play

WHAT IS A CO-OP?

 

Cooperative preschools are operated by a community of families who want to be involved in their children's first educational experience. Parents and caregivers assist in the classroom, take on jobs to help the school function smoothly, participate in decision-making, and learn more about development and parenting from teachers and other early childhood experts.

 

Children benefit from:

- Play-based, child-led learning

- A low child:adult ratio in the classroom

- A community of adults supporting the whole family

- Daily opportunities to explore the world and build social-emotional skills

- Creating a positive attitude toward school 

- Developing a love of learning
