For over fifty years the Family Cooperative Preschool has provided a loving and child-centered early chidlhood education in our community.
In 2002, Family Cooperative Preschool was faced with the choice of purchasing the schoolhouse building and the surrounding two-acre parcel, or relocating. Our Board of Directors unanimously voted to buy the property, thus ensuring that our nature-based curriculum and outdoor philosophy can continue for generations to come. The Board has also committed to meet our on-going purchase obligations through fundraising instead of tuition increases. Family Cooperative Preschool welcomes any donation to help support our school.
An ongoing fundraiser for our school is the sale of Bricks which are installed in our entrance walkway. Brick orders received by the end of school year are installed during the following summer. Click here for the order form.
Every year the parents and teachers of the Family Cooperative Preschool organize a series of fundraising events. The funds raised are used for a variety of purposes, such as financial aid, improvement of building and grounds, and purchase obligations. In addition, these events build a sense of community among the families at the school, both present and past.
Funds are raised in a variety of ways, including informal and organized social events, direct donations, and selling personalized bricks to help pave a commemorative pathway that will be part of Family Cooperative Preschool’s permanent history.
Here is a partial list of fundraising events for the 2019-2020 school year. Events are subject to change.
Brick Sales - This ongoing fundraiser helps you add your name or meaningful quote to the walkway in the entrance of the school. Order form can be found by clicking here.
Amazon Fundraiser - A no-brainer! Visit Amazon Smile through this link and confirm the school as your chosen charity. Then go to smile.amazon.com for your future purchases -- same prices, products and everything else as the regular Amazon site, but your purchases help support the school!
Annual Used Toy Sale! - This is a great end of year fundraiser to benefit our school. It is also a great reason to get going with your spring cleaning and purge your home of old toys, baby items and school supplies that are no longer needed. The sale is scheduled for May 4th from 9-1 in the parking lot of McAloons Liquors (531 Chickering Rd, N Andover). Families who choose to donate, please drop off toys between 830 am-9 am (there is no storage available prior to the sale).
We are asking for volunteers to help out - set up, clean up and throughout the sale. We are also asking for folding tables to display items. Any unsold items will be donated. If you do not want your items donated, please return by 1 pm to collect them.
