A Cooperative Preschool

Building Strong Foundations for our Children Since 1938

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 sessions for 3-5 year olds.  Our class meets 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.
