Finding a space for your family at The Cooperative Preschool
The Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnic background of children or families in its admissions.
Reading through the website Please take time to look around. We have tried to give prospective families a lot of information about who we are, the benefits and responsibilities of our cooperative and to give families a feel for what our school is like.
Setting up a tour or observation If you have read through the website, and are interested in the school, we suggest emailing or calling to schedule a tour or observation of our program. If you wish to see the program when class is in session (observation), you will need to find care for your children. If you would like to set up a time to see the school outside of class hours (tour), you may bring your children with you to see the classroom. During admission season (January and February) we have specific observation and tour dates and times.
Getting on the wait list When you have decided that the school is a good fit for your family, you may fill out the Wait List Form and pay the Wait List Fee of $25 ($26.32 with processing fee). During open enrollment the registrar will call names on the wait list to inform them of openings in the class they are interested in. Children remain on the Wait List until they are too old for the school. Please note, that although spots are filled by the order they submitted their form for the wait list, the school reserves the right to balance classes by gender.
Admission Calendar Open Enrollment begins in late February or early March and ends when classes are full.
Scholarships The Cooperative Preschool budgets and fundraises for scholarships each year. All scholarships are need based. Families may ask for a scholarship application upon notification that a space is available for their child. Most scholarships are partial scholarships. The Cooperative Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnic background of children or families when making decisions about scholarships.
