Children at the Cooperative Nursery School create and engage in a rich developmentally appropriate curriculum and child-centered environment. Our school seeks to establish an involved community of diverse families who work together to provide the best early learning experience for each child. Through play and work, children develop a mastery and ownership of their learning by actively participating and collaborating within this inclusive community. Children are supported and nurtured as their curiosity and interactions lead to discovery, problem solving skills, and independence. Through communication, respect, love and empathy, children learn that they are valued members of the community and can practice values of equity and justice toward others.
