Who We Are
Founded more than 45 years ago by a group of parents looking to join together in offering their young children a place to learn and play, Freeland Cooperative Preschool has grown to become a family-friendly, child-centered home to the families of Freeland and our surrounding communities.
Our state-accredited programs address children individually and our experienced teachers take great joy in discovering the unique potential – academically, socially, and interpersonally – of every child.
What is a cooperative preschool?
As a cooperative preschool, parents (or a designated caregiver over the age of 18) work alongside students and their teacher in the classroom every few weeks. Want to know what it's like to work in the classroom? Check out our daily schedule and our working in the classroom outline.
Who can attend?
Children must be between the ages of two and three-quarters (2 ¾) and five (5) years of age to start preschool. A child is eligible for enrollment if his or her third birthday precedes the date dictated by the State of Michigan.
All children attending school must be potty trained. With the exception of minimal accidents, our definition of “potty trained” means that the child is in underpants and indicates toileting needs to teachers on a regular basis.
Freeland Cooperative Preschool admits children of any race, religion, disability, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available to students at the school. We do not discriminate in any way within the administration of our educational policies, enrollment policies, financial plan, or any other school administered program.
