We are a non-profit, parent-operated, cooperative preschool. Founded in 1933, our preschool is a supportive community of 25 different families, working together to facilitate our children's development and operate the school. We also have a Bridge K program and toddler classes.

Preschool Program

As a parent-cooperative, parents and children grow and develop together in our two-year program.  We provides morning, play-based classes, with parent involvement at the school one day per week. Learn more

Bridge K Program

In our one-year Bridge K Program, we provide an intimate afternoon program with play-based, developmentally appropriate curriculum for children ready for more challenge and decreased parent involvement. Learn more

Toddler Program

Our Toddler Playtime program provides experiential classes for young children and their parent or caregiver, and are the perfect introduction to a preschool environment. Learn more
