History and Philosophy

History

Northaven Co-operative Preschool and Kindergarten has been in existence since 1969. It was started by a group of mothers interested in an alternative, quality preschool that was different from others they had found in Dallas. In the Co-op environment, parents take turns assisting the teacher in the classsroom.  The parents whose children are enrolled in the school operate the Co-op.

Northaven Co-operative Preschool is non-sectarian, valuing variety and differences in background among its families, with a deep commitment to the growth and education of children. It is an extension into the community of the Northaven United Methodist Church’s respect for openness in human relationships, for the worth of the individual, and for cooperation among many adults as they care for children and for each other. For more information on the Northaven United Methodist Church, please visit www.northaven.org.

Philosophy

The Vision

Our first priority, always, is to nurture students and families, creating an environment for learning and growth.

We create this environment by partnering with families to provide early school experiences that offer opportunities for children:

  • To use their large muscles vigorously and with increasing control;
  • To explore small muscle skills;
  • To experience the environment through all their senses;
  • To become aware of their own feelings and emotions as natural and acceptable and to learn to express them in constructive ways;
  • To enjoy the company of other boys and girls;
  • To see themselves as individuals in relationship to other children and adults;
  • To grow in independence, self-confidence, and self-control;
  • To explore books, games, fantasy and role-playing, blocks, water, sand, words, print and number concepts, art media, and music and movement; and
  • To sharpen their abilities to observe, pay attention, follow directions, and communicate, while nurturing a sense of wonder.
