The Benefits of a Co-op

The wonderful thing about being part of a cooperative preschool is the relationships that you and your child build together and the true sense of community that develops!

Being part of a cooperative preschool is becoming part of a large family. Working together in partnership with your child’s teacher and other parents develops a strong support network for you and your child which is often maintained far beyond the preschool years.


The friendships made and sense of community help to make co-operative preschools so unique, creating a truly nurturing and supportive learning environment for your child.

Research suggests that teachers working in partnership with parents in the early years supports learning and development later in life.

A wealth of international research suggests that the early years of a child’s life are of real significance in helping your child to succeed in later years. 


Parents are their child’s primary educators and at AANI we value the opportunity to work in partnership together with you to support your child to develop, learn and grow. Working in the classroom alongside the teacher allows parents the opportunity to see their child’s learning “in action” and to continue to build on these experiences at home.

What are the advantages of a cooperative preschool for you and your child?
