Cooperative Preschool - COOP

COOPERATIVE PRESCHOOL FOR 3 AND 4 YEAR OLDS

The Co-op Preschool is for children ages three through kindergarten entry who are ready for preschool with and without a parent present. Our programs are rich in play and developmentally appropriate. We follow the California Preschool Learning Foundations to foster school readiness skills. Credentialed teachers facilitate meaningful, engaging curriculum designed to nurture the whole child, including social, emotional, language, and academic development. Our curriculum is woven into our day and includes music, dramatic play, storytelling, art, math, science, and pre-literacy activities.

To be eligible for the Cooperative Preschool, your child must meet the age requirement and be toilet-trained. Parent volunteers must provide documentation of fingerprint clearance and a tuberculosis screening, and a copy of the child’s Official Immunization Record verifying immunizations are current for school entry. A nonrefundable $60 registration fee is required each year to secure a spot. Please see "Registration" below for specifics regarding our 2019-20 enrollment procedure.

Three different preschool options are available, offering a variety of schedules, ages, volunteer requirements, and locations.
