Prospective Parents

Welcome! The Magnolia Cooperative Preschool is a community-based, parent-run preschool, organized to provide a learning experience for both children and parents. Cooperative preschools emphasize socialization and incorporate academics through play – the way children learn best. Parents, through participation in the classroom, observation and monthly parent education meetings, gain skills in child guidance and learn how to meet children’s physical, mental, social and emotional needs.

Please explore our website, visit our school, and join us if our Co-op seems like a good fit for your family. We’d love to have you! Questions? Please contact our volunteer vice chair of membership at
