Enrolling for Fall!

Jefferson Cooperative Nursery School is now enrolling for fall 2008. Our program 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. The school year runs from September to June, and the class typically meets 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.

You can get a glimpse of the school and read more about it in the Detroit Free Press article in today's paper, linked here.

Here is some additional information about Jefferson Cooperative Nursery School, including contact information:

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 is not a religious program) 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 and supporting us in so many ways since 1948!

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.
