I love the educational philosophy of this school! Each class is partly directed by the teacher during circle time and it's very academic. The other part of each class is student-directed. There are stations set out that the children are encouraged to participate in. They are also welcome to select their own activities from the shelves, do pretend play in the themed areas, care for the classroom pets, water the native rain gardens outside, and work on their word box or read a book. And through it all, as a Cooperative School, the parents take part in all aspects of the school, including taking turns as classroom helpers. Take a tour and see for yourself!

Magothy Cooperative Preschool is a family oriented school. The whole idea that a parent needs to be involved with their child's education resonants with me. The moms that go here with their children are the ones that lead the local Moms Clubs and the PTA. Magothy asks that a family member be the Helping Parent once or twice a month in their child's class; helping with an activity table, setting up the snack and playing with the children. The whole class tends to bond, both parents and children and continue playdates outside of school.
Not everyone is able to be so hands-on with their child's education or wants to be, but if you can, this school will be a fit for you too.
