"Community Cooperative Preschool is a warm and happy place where children spontaneously try out ideas. We encourage children to choose activities that offer opportunities for individual discovery through concrete and cognitive experience, creative play, and social interaction. We believe that if children are encouraged to work in their own ways, they will grow in independence and, therefore, develop a positive self-image. Our guiding principle is that children who feel good about themselves will be most open to further knowledge, comfortable in expressing their feelings to others, and ready to develop increased social, physical, and intellectual competence."
