Where children & parents
learn & grow together
The Cooperative Experience
Cooperative education goes beyond academics. We provide a sense of community and purpose that fosters friendships, personal growth as individuals, and a sense of belonging - for children and families!
In a co-op, families and teachers work together to share the responsibilities of the school's operations. Families participate on rotating schedules to maintain, and continuously improve the school and its programs.
Guiding and teaching parents and children
the joy of self-discovery, experimentation, and the power of learning, since 1975.
Children gain independence and confidence as they build friendships with peers and trusted adults at school. Low student-to-adult ratios (5:1) ensure a positive learning environment, and help children develop their ability to relate to people of all ages and backgrounds.
Parents have a unique opportunity to learn about preschooler development, and gain skills for guiding young children. Our members often share that they learn as much, if not more, than the children. Learning at school can be continued and reinforced at home for a comprehensive, cohesive approach.
By participating at preschool parents have a deep understanding of what happens during class, and can share in the joy of shared knowledge and references with their children.

Education, Beyond Learning
Our play-based, developmental program applies a child-centered philosophy using a thematic approach and STEAMS curriculum to facilitate learning in all areas of a child's development.
Our learning environment supports lifelong social and emotional skills, such as problem solving, how to communicate needs, and the belief that children can “do hard things.”
Children explore their individual school experience, one that engages and builds upon the child’s current knowledge, through our carefully planned educational program.
"I can do hard things."
- LPPP Children
Growth, All Around
Through a developmental play-based program for the whole child, we seek to enrich and empower, as each child joyfully develops.
We believe in the power of community, of parents, and of the unlimited potential of every child and family.
We create a nurturing and supportive community of children, parents, and highly skilled staff because of our belief that together we can enhance the very foundation of a child’s life.
"The curriculum is rich and stimulating, allowing students
to engage in high-level thinking skills."
