Our Mission

To provide a quality preschool which nurtures the development of the whole child and provides parents the opportunity to participate directly in the education of their young children.

Our Classes​

We offer preschool classes for children aged 2 to 5. Each class has an age-based student-teacher ratio. Classes meet two to four mornings a week, depending on age. On Fridays, we welcome children older than 3.5 years old to our special Fab Friday class, where they enjoy STEM activities like cooking, experiments, and engineering.​

What Our Families Say

Some of my earliest childhood memories are from my time as a preschooler at Northaven Co-op. Quick, vivid snapshots: Having my face painted at the Great Pumpkin Carnival, singing crisscross apple sauce at circle time, proudly watching my parent lovingly prepare the classroom snack when it was their turn to co-op. Fast forward a generation, and I’m re-living those precious memories with my daughters, as now it’s their turn to discover and grow in this safe, nurturing environment that welcomes everyone. This is the incredible legacy of Northaven Co-operative Preschool. An extension of home where memories and friendships are made that will last a lifetime.
