Details about our school

We are now enrolling for Fall!!

For those of you who are interested in what our school is like: Jefferson Cooperative Nursery School is designed for children ages 2-1/2 to 5. It is a high-quality, half-day program with classes held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. either 3 or 4 days a week depending on enrollment. This year (Sept. 2007 - June 2008) the classes meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The Co-op also now offers extended hours with an after-care program that runs until 1:00 p.m., available for a nominal fee.

Philosophy • The preschool offers a play-oriented, structured program designed to foster independence, self-esteem and internal control. The goal is to prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills to handle a wide variety of academic, social and interpersonal situations.

Instruction • The teacher is educated in child growth and development and has years of experience working with preschoolers.

Beautiful Facility • Located in the architecturally stunning Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church in Indian Village (Detroit), the preschool (which, incidentally, is not affiliated with the church) features a spacious classroom with extensive toys, arts & crafts, imaginative play area, water table, rice table, playscape and indoor gym. We are grateful to the church for providing this fabulous space to the school!

Ideal Ratio • Enrollment is typically between 5 to 10 children, allowing for an intimate teacher/parent/child ratio.

Co-op Requirements • Parents assist the teacher at class time two to three times each month, provide healthy snacks, as well as attend monthly meetings. Depending upon class size, “non-co-op” enrollment may be available for an additional fee.

Tuition • (Sept-June co-op rate): $1500/year for 3 days/week; $2000/year for 4 days/week.
