Building bright futures
Founded in 1963, San Diego Cooperative Preschool is committed to a child-centered approach to play-based learning—providing indoor and outdoor free play areas with hands-on activities designed to spark imaginations, encourage independence, and nurture kindness. We see children as unique individuals and respect and respond to their individual needs.
Providing the highest quality care…
We lead with a supportive community of children, parents, and highly skilled teachers and staff. Everything we do must create for our children a vision of a future in which each child plays an integral part as a doer, leader, and nurturer. We strive to encourage children to develop life-long, heart-felt values and to be sensitive to each other, their environment, and the world at large.
From art and science to cooking and Spanish…
Our program allows children to learn and explore based on individual interests, guided by a dedicated staff of early childhood educators. Parents and families are deeply involved in the community—assisting teachers in and outside of the classroom, and fundraising to ensure the future success of our school.
