Marysville Cooperative Preschool (MCP) has been serving the
families of Marysville and the surrounding communities since 1964.
We are the original preschool in Marysville and the only cooperative in the city.
A Cooperative is a school where parents and teacher work together in cooperation for the education and maturation of the children. At present, one teacher and two or three parents work during each class session with 20-24 children. Parents are scheduled to assist on a rotating basis and know this schedule in advance. Assisting parents must arrive on time, actively participate with the children, provide snack and assist in cleaning up after the session has ended.
The purpose of this organization is to promote the social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of the preschool child. We provide a safe and nurturing environment which allows children to grow at their own developmentally appropriate pace. We understand that every child learns differently and it is our responsibility to offer various experiences to facilitate that learning. As a co-op, we are fortunate to be able to work alongside parents to help teach them constructive methods of child care through observation, guidance and practical experience.
