Since our founding in 1963, the Co-op has remained true to its mission to educate the whole child, keeping children at the center of all we do and involving parents in the life of the school. As our first teachers did over fifty years ago, we give children the opportunity to excel today in a nurturing and academically exciting environment. At the Co-op, students find learning joyful and relish coming to school every day.
The Co-op exists to engage parents in their children’s education, to keep children at the center of school life, to safeguard play and childhood, to excite and ignite imaginations, to support growth, allow for mistakes, and to impel our students towards their own personal excellence. It is the most important work in the world. We bring out the best in our students so that they can be the leaders who make the world a better place. At the heart of our educational approach is the belief that children thrive in an environment that emphasizes a progressive approach to learning, a sense of community among students, teachers and parents and the development of social skills.
