Unity Cooperative PreschoolA cooperative preschool is one in which parents help the teacher in the classroom and receive moral support and mutual understanding from the teacher and other parents with the same concerns, interests and problems.

By giving parents the opportunity to work in the classroom, the child’s first school experience is in a supportive, caring and nurturing atmosphere.

In this way we can help children become independent and self-confident learners and use their cognitive and verbal skills to help resolve conflicts, understand the values of self, peers and family and to have fun in school! Our children especially enjoy their days when their parent is in the classroom!

Unity Cooperative PreschoolWe encourage children to discover the pleasures and responsibilities of being a group member and to build new friendships. A variety of experiences are provided with lots of opportunities to discover and explore. These activities are presented and/or perceived as “play” to the children.

Studies show that play is an extremely important aspect of a young child’s development!
