The adventure begins

The University Co-op journey begins in Pre-K with wonder and magic! We know how to have a wild rumpus in the field, investigate what lives under rocks, paint swirls of color on paper, discover the secrets in the creek, dig in the dirt, have epic adventure in imaginative play, dance and sing, build fairy houses and skyscrapers, tell wondrous stories and have so much fun.

Growing together

Pre-K at U Co-op is a warm and nurturing environment where loving relationships develop and grow. Our preschool program is dynamic and child-centered. Sparks of creativity and discovery fly, the roots of learning take hold, connections form, voices and bodies grow strong, confidence builds, and kindness and empathy blossom. The unique partnership between parents/caregivers and teachers creates a secure and comfortable environment where children thrive and learn to value themselves and others as important members of our diverse community.

A day in the life

The Pre-K runs from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM Monday – Friday, with aftercare provided by Wedgewood Drama Studio from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM. Each day holds different treasures and discoveries but is always rooted in play. Activities and projects are often based on the children’s interests, and typically include nature explorations, songs, stories, art, and building cool stuff!
