The Park City Cooperative Preschool (PCCP) is a not-for-profit school administered by the parents themselves. The school was established in 1987 by a group of parents who wanted a quality preschool experience for their children. Parents who choose the Co-op are committed to personal involvement in their child’s education.
The school provides a stimulating and varied environment where children are encouraged to work independently, in small and large groups, and in teacher-directed activities.
Classes meet on either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. There are eighteen children in each class; ideally with nine in the three-year-old program and nine in the four-year-old program. The children in the four-year-old program also attend on Friday when they concentrate on pre-kindergarten skills, Spanish and special projects.
There are two teachers and two co-op parents each day, which make the child to adult ratio 4:1. Preschool hours are 9:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
