Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Anacortes Cooperative Preschool is a wonderful place to familiarize your child with the school experience. Our parents and our teacher, Miss Ashley, are dedicated to helping our children grow and learn. Everyone who enrolls their child in a Co-op Preschool can be a part of this unique system. "Learn through play" is what we teach and believe in."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

"During the day the children will have:
* Free play and one-on-one time with our teacher.
* Circle and project time - working on calendars, the alphabet and various themes.
* Listening to stories and singing songs.
* Snack time - healthy snacks and working on social skills and independence (manners, self-serve lessons,etc.).
* Time to work with the group and interact with one another (taking turns, playing together, etc.)."

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Parents are active participants in our classroom. Co-op parents are expected to volunteer in the classroom at least two times a month. This allows our families to grow and learn together. Parents also attend monthly parent meetings and are highly encouraged to run for board positions.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Parents in classroom early on
