Welcome to Denver Cooperative Preschool
A group of parents founded our preschool in 1960 with the mission to guide young children on the adventure of self-discovery through play. We believe that a child’s early experience is the foundation for adult potential, that parents are the key to a child’s unique development and that play is essential in the learning process of a child.
Children attend with a parent and are gently introduced to separation for part of the class. Ages 12 to 23 months.
Developing cooperative play in a fun learning environment. Ages 2 to 3 years old.
Social development with peers in an encouraging atmosphere. Ages 3 to 4 years old.
Kindergarten readiness through self-directed play. Ages 4 to 6 years old.
We believe that the natural and important activity called “play” is what enhances development in children.
When you enroll your child in DCP, you become one of the member families who owns and administers the preschool.
We are so excited that you are thinking about coming to visit our school! Before you schedule a tour – we ask that you take a moment to familiarize yourself with our website and take a look at all of the great programs we offer, our daily schedules, tuition rates, and age groups that we serve. As opposed to handing out information packets on tours, or sending out printed information in the mail – we have worked hard to save a few trees, and make sure that most of the FAQs and information about our school is right here on our awesome website instead!
When you are ready to schedule a tour, please call the school at 303-777-6867 OR email our Executive Director Mary Nelson, at email@example.com to see how fun it is!
We regularly schedule tours on Tuesdays, Thursday, and Fridays at either 9:00 or 1:00 – and yes!… your children are more than welcome to join you 🙂
