Our son started at the Co-op a year ago and we couldn't be happier with the experience he's had. The warm play-based environment is exactly what we were hoping for; we were nervous about our son starting in a new environment where he didn't know anyone but now he wakes up every morning and can't wait to go to school. There are so many great learning activities that include science, music and even furry friends from the Animal Embassy. Everyone from the administration down to the teachers and their assistants are not only top-notch educators but also friendly and loving towards the children. In addition the Co-op actively works to create a community that engages the parents and creates a true family experience. Overall we cannot recommend the Co-op highly enough and are incredibly happy our son's (and now our daughter's!) education is off to such a great start!

Westport Weston Coop Nursury School I have been a teacher at the COOP for over ten years and it is a magical place. The director and the teachers are committed and professional. The parents are very involved in our program. The children are the focus of the curriculum-child based. There are specials that address science,music, literacy and sign language. We are in the process of earning our accreditation as an outdoor classroom.

The Co-op is a wonderful and engaging place for little ones to learn and grow. We couldn't be happier with how loving and creative the teachers are, how welcoming and involved the parents are, and how much our son loves going in the morning! We chose the Co-op primarily for its focus on child centered learning and incorporation of its natural setting into daily learning, but there are so many other things about the school that make it special. When we started in the 2s program, our son's teachers came to our house before school started to meet him on his own turf and get to know more about the life he's familiar with before entering theirs. It made the 1st day of school so much easier...for all of us! And we weren't required to potty train before we thought he was ready. That was important to us too. Finally, being asked to be engaged as a parent there has been a great experience. I know the school as intimately as he does and have made great friends in the process. We feel very lucky to be part of the Co-op family and couldn't imagine our second born going any place else!

Having just moved to the area and not knowing much about the different options of schools when I decided on the Co-op, I can now say that I feel like the luckiest person to have landed where we did. My two kids immediately felt completely at home and look forward to school every day. Kids are encouraged to be who they are-working at their own pace and finding their own interests. The teachers and staff are truly a wonderful group who have gone out of their way to meet the needs of my family and my kids on multiple occasions. My kids are thriving in their new life in CT and I credit the Co-op.
