Northeast Cooperative Preschool and Kindergarten5

Our child is in the "Frogs" class, ages 4-5. Simply put, we LOVE our child's teacher, Tracey Johns. I'm a former teacher and I know the challenges of the profession, and Mrs. Johns is the consummate teacher: caring, a natural leader for kids, super super prepared (e.g., every class meeting features three *new* unit-themed, play-based educational activities that focus on different skills, mixed in with a rotation of stand-by games and toys), an effective communicator with parents, and on and on. Our child is learning the most important skills for this age: love of exploring and learning, making friends and playing cooperatively, and acting as a member of a class. Our child is also growing a lot with fine motor skills. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this coop to anyone.
Both of my children have attended school at Northeast. It was truly one of the best decisions I've ever made to send my boys here. All of the teachers are creative, innovative, genuinely interested in the kids. The teamwork of all of the parents involved makes this school not only a place of learning but an exceptional community of caring families. The Kindergarten at this school is a great play-based and enriching program which focuses on the whole child at a time when academics alone are the focus of many programs.
We love Northeast so much! The teachers are wonderful and caring with the children. The play based curriculum is perfect with getting my child socially involved as well as learning about her world. The community of parents is also fantastic. The support we get is amazing!
We chose Northeast because of the play-based curriculum and the community environment. All four teachers are fabulous. I have learned so much from them in class. And I love knowing the other children and their parents. The kindergarten is the crown jewel. Low tuition, high parent involvement, supportive teachers and families. A great experience for us.
I have two children in this school which offers classes for children aged 2 up to kindergarten. There is a great community atmosphere, a play-based curriculum and caring, experienced teachers - all at a very reasonable price.
We searched for a long time to find a school that we really liked and we finally found it at Northeast. It has been a wonderful experience. The teachers are exceptional, the other parents have become like an extended family, and my children love it there. We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful school for our children.
We love everything about this preschool-the teachers, the parents, and the location. Our first child has just completed preschool here and will be attending kindergarten at Northeast too. Our favorite part of Northeast is the sense of family you experience-my child feels comfortable with any parent at the preschool!
