Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School

Our program is structured around developmentally appropriate learning experiences in the context of play.  Play is the natural work of the young child.  Through play, a child can become self-reliant, develop a positive self-image, acquire fine and gross motor skills, and engage in language, science, and math experiences. 

Children benefit from being able to share their first school experiences with parents and caregivers. Our cooperative model lends itself to families forming a genuine, collaborative community within the school. Staff values relationships, understanding that they create the space for children to better develop security and trust in their classrooms and teachers. In turn, they are available for real learning to take place.  Each day, parents are in the classrooms and we are collaborating together. 

Our professional team of educators works alongside parents in the classroom; the school director works closely with the Board of Directors; and families serve on committees. Together, we ensure that each school year is a successful one for children and families, and that the legacy of the school continues to be an opportunity for future generations of Co-op children.
