Welcome to Our Preschool!
Ann Arbor Nursery is a cooperative preschool located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. We are the longest-running cooperative preschool in Michigan- since 1938!
We offer morning and afternoon sessions for 3-5 year olds. Our classes meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
We are strong believers in a play-based philosophy, where children can develop social, emotional, and intellectual skills through cooperative and creative play.
We are a nurturing community in which parents share the responsibility for the education of their children.
We are committed to high-quality education at a low cost.
