Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Very nurturing, understanding staff. Both my kids have felt extremely comfortable being away from home for the first time. The also do a lot of art and science projects that my kids absolutely love. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to a friend.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Our child went from barely being able to color to being able to write her name over the course of the year. The teachers tailor their approach to each individual child.

I am incredibly impressed by the teachers and curriculum at the Windham Co-Op. The lesson plans are very structured while also allowing children time for free play with the educational toys throughout each classroom. The Coop has given my son a very positive impression of school. He loves being there and counts down the days over the weekend until he can come back to school. I also really enjoy the Co-op atmosphere and feel a real sense of community. I have made some lifelong friends through interactions with other families at the Co-op.

In one if the other reviews I read that the curriculum here is lacking. I couldn't disagree more. My child received the skills necessary to excel in first grade. In comparing schools with other parents, the co-op's teachers are exceptionally organized and offer a structured curriculum...and they go about it with the kindness and sweetness you would expect from a preschool teacher. Very impressed!

My youngest started nursery school at the co-op in the fall and we have been extremely pleased with the teaching staff. The nursery teacher is very knowledgeable and has a keen sense of her students' needs. The nursery curriculum involves lots of cutting, coloring, finger painting, play dough, learning numbers and letters, music, and outside play time. The teacher-student ratio is really good and beautiful, clean building!

The Windham Co-op provided an exceptional learning experience to both of my children from nursery through kindergarten. The teachers are nurturing, experienced, well-trained and enthusiastic. The school's curriculum incorporates math and reading programs used in Windham public schools as well as Handwriting without Tears. The programs include a lot of science as well. The staff and parent board are responsive, eager to address, and open to parent concerns and suggestions. The school community is tight-knit, supportive, and very involved with many of the children and families maintaining friendships well into public school and beyond. My children are confident, inquisitive learners and enjoy school which I attribute in part to their experience at the Co-op. Every school has its' strengths and weaknesses, but the Windham Co-op's strengths far exceed any of its' weaknesses!



- a parent
Both of my children have attended here and I think the parent involvement is wonderful and a great opportunity! My 2 complaints are the curriculum and the staff. They need to re-evaluate their curriculum and if they are really preparing kids for our public school. The staff does not have the enthusiasm that preschoolers should be around. It is great for a nursery program-first school experience and parent involvement is great-but they have a few things they need to really work on.
