Fairmount Cooperative Preschool offers morning preschool classes for children ages 2.5-5. Classes meet 3 or 4 mornings per week with an extended day option. We stress the importance of LEARNING THROUGH PLAY by exploring art, music, science, literature, and dramatic play. Our school functions because of the cooperation and contributions of our families. In a cooperative, we recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children. Once a month, parents volunteer alongside teachers in the classroom. With this approach, teachers grow in insight and skill, parents grow in understanding and confidence, and children reap the best of both!
