We believe in

Play-Based Learning
for the Whole Family


Our mission

Building life-long values

At San Diego Cooperative Preschool, we believe play is the foundation for happiness, development, and growth. We provide the highest quality care while creating a nurturing and supportive community of children, parents, and highly skilled teachers and staff. Our model of community sustains and enriches our children throughout their lives. We seek to enrich every child’s experience and to empower each child to joyfully develop at their own rate.


Our community

A whole-family approach

As a cooperative, each family plays an active role in their child’s experience. Parents volunteer in the classroom twice per month and participate in community activities and fundraising programs to benefit our school. Our families are an essential part of our preschool’s continued success as a nonprofit.
