The Bilingual Cooperative Preschool follows two main tenets: bilingual language development and cooperation.
Half of each school day is taught in Spanish, while the other half is taught in English.
We also strive to build community through cooperation. Our parents play an active role in all aspects of running our school. Parents from each family attend monthly membership meetings to create and implement school policy. And three parents assist the teachers in the classroom every day.
Central to our philosophy, and overwhelmingly supported by current research, is the belief that parental involvement plays a crucial role in assuring a child's success, both in school and in life outside of school. Parents bring a unique understanding of their children to the classroom. With this knowledge, teachers and parents work together to create learning experiences that meet the needs of each child.
At the Co-op, the children and the families are the school. We learn and grow together.
