Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"A cooperative nursery school is a school in which parents have the
unique opportunity to participate in their child's first experience with
school. Through our "helping days," parents enjoy the privilege of
assisting the teacher in the classroom. It is tremendous fun to spend
time with our children and their friends, and of course this allows us to
see how they interact with others."
Excerpted from the preschool's website
