The Pleasant Valley Cooperative Nursery School has been offering a pre-school curriculum to 3-5 year old children in our local community for over 35 years. Our goal is to help children become enthusiastic learners prepared for kindergarten. This preparation will support the child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth through exploration and play.
The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning requires active thinking and experimenting to understand how things work in the world around us. The use of real materials such as blocks, sand, water, puzzles and other natural items foster a better understanding of concepts such as sizes, shapes, colors and the relationships between things.
Play provides the social and emotional preparation children need before they enter elementary school. Play enables us to teach young children concepts such as sharing, waiting your turn, group participation and other skills required for successful classroom participation and learning.
The PV Co-op admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all of the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
The Cooperative Experience
The Cooperative format encourages high parent involvement to both keep tuition low and to allow parents to be part of their child’s educational experience. Parents play a role in choosing teachers, implementing and voting on particular policies, working at jobs in the day to day running of the school and volunteering in their child's classroom.
For parents who cannot participate in the cooperative model, a non-cooperative option is available.
