"Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be."

Ana Younghusband
Head of School

I have been an educator for 17 years, an experience that spans both teaching and leadership roles, in both public and independent schools in Italy, England, and the US.

I was drawn to the Co-op in 2017 because of its genuine focus on the whole child and meeting children where they are, which is profoundly inspiring to me.   Teachers are given the space to be creative and responsive to the children in front of them, and children are truly seen and heard.   My own two kids are at the Co-op, and I get to see first hand how our school ignites and nurtures a love of learning, curiosity and enthusiasm. I am incredibly proud to be a part of this amazing community.
