Cooperative Preschools

Phinney Neighborhood Association houses two parent-run cooperative preschools at two locations.

What’s a cooperative preschool? A co-op preschool is operated by a parent-run board, and usually requires some level of parent/caregiver participation in the classroom. The level of parent involvement varies from program to program. This structure typically provides a high adult-to-child ratio, allowing for increased one-on-one engagement.  The model creates not only a rich learning environment for children but also supports families in their parenting journey.
