Family Cooperative Preschool


Family Cooperative Preschool is a high-quality early childhood program licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. Since 1952, we have provided a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of young children.

What sets us apart:

  • Our three-room schoolhouse is located in a beautiful rural setting with ample space for indoor and outdoor activity, and unique opportunities for nature exploration and learning. Weather permitting, children spend most of the day outdoors every day.

  • We are a cooperative preschool. Parents gain a better understanding of the preschool child through participating ("co-oping") in the classroom about once a month. Other cooperative efforts include committee opportunities, fundraising events, clean-up parties, and parent meetings.

  • We offer a multiage program for ages 3, 4 and 5. Children need to be 2 years 9 months by August 31 (3 years by December 31) of the year for which they are applying.

  • The school is a nut-free environment, and we are particularly sensitive to food and environmental allergies as well as other health concerns.
