Our Philosophy

A cooperative preschool seeks to create an environment in which the Director, Teacher and Parents work together in the classroom, participating in the daily operations of the preschool to allow each child to grow and develop according to their individual needs.  We believe the involvement and commitment of the parents to the co-op reinforces happy learning experiences for the child in one of his or her first ventures away from home.

‚Äč

Preschool is a learning experience for parents as well as children.  Parents may observe and interact with different children as well as watch their own child interact with other children and adults. A cooperative preschool nurtures the whole family by helping parents achieve a greater understanding and enjoyment of their own child as they share in this very important chapter in their child's life. We adhere to Developmentally Appropriate Practice and a play-based curriculum.  More info on DAP can be found here.


Our History

Over thirty years ago, in 1983, the PPCP began in three rooms upstairs in the First Presbyterian Church.  For the first few years, this space served as home.  In 1989 the Coop moved to its current location "the cute little school house" at 323 Mary St.


Throughout the years the PPCP has continually embodied the spirit of uniting education and community.  Since it's inception hundreds of families have been members of the Coop.


While the PPCP has greatly benefited from its relationship with, and blessings of, the First Presbyterian Church, the families comprising the Coop have always represented varied religious backgrounds.
