Hibernating in Preschool!

Every year we end our winter unit with a hibernation day in the 4's class!  We turn our meeting area into a cave and we go on a bear hunt! And of course we must wear our PJ's when hibernating!  I have to say the day is always a great success!  Here are a few pictures from our day!

Reading a story in our cave!

Cooperative Nursery School Open House!

Please visit the Cooperative Nursery School on Thursday February 21, 2013 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. or Friday February 22 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m.  We will begin accepting applications for the 2013-2014 school year on Tuesday February 19, 2013.

Learn about our unique preschool!  Our high level of parent involvement makes our Coop unique!  Coop provides a safe, secure, and engaging learning environment for our children!  Our program is enriched by the involvement of our parents, who bring to the classroom a wide range of cultural, educational, and artistic backgrounds.  The high level of parent involvement also facilitates a smoother transition from family life to the world of school!

Coop is dedicated to the cooperative concept of early education where teachers, parents, and children work together to create the best learning environment for each child to reach their own potential of emotional, intellectual, and social growth.  The teaching strategy used to reach our goal of responsiveness to individual learning is the Creative Curriculum by Diane Trister Dodge.  This curriculum concept seeks to balance teacher-planned and child-initiated learning, and to respond to the individual strengths, interests, needs, and learning styles of each child.

Coop has been educating preschool children since 1946!  Please stop by for a visit!
