If you are looking for an excellent early childhood education program in Grand Rapids, then you are in the right place!  Northwest Co-op Preschool offers a play-based, child-centered approach to preschool.

We focus on teaching the whole child.

Equal emphasis is placed on social, emotional, and intellectual growth. The learning environment is rich with hands on experiences in the classroom.  Our teacher has a deep understanding of early childhood development and the experience needed to guide young children in the learning process.

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood…
- Fred Rogers

The curriculum is based on well researched teaching practices that support the unique way that young children learn. Experienced-based education encourages children’s creativity, helps them to become critical thinkers and promotes interest in life-long learning. Parents are viewed as partners and collaborators in the education of their child.

As a co-op, we enjoy the benefits of parent participation in the classroom and in the operation of the school. Northwest Cooperative Preschool is a choice for your child’s first school experience and a welcoming community for your family.
