Big Bend Cooperative Preschool

Welcome to the Co-op Preschool and Parent Education Program!

By participating in our parent operated cooperative program, you will be actively giving the gift of time and energy to your child while sharing parenting ideas with your peers. You will have opportunities to observe and assist your young child in exploring and learning through teacher directed activities. Based on a developmentally appropriate and proven educational model, this is a unique hands on experience for both you and your child.

Parents in our program work together with our teachers to facilitate our children’s social and emotional development. Typically, parents are in the classroom once a week and attend a business/parent education meeting once each month, as well as participating in fundraising activities. This helps us keep our tuition very reasonable, and gives us the opportunity to participate in the classroom with our children. Our motto is “Learning through Play!” We would love to share our program with you. This site should give you a quick introduction.
