Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Windham Cooperative Kindergarten and Nursery School. What makes our school great is our community of parents, teachers and administration working together to create a school that nurtures the whole child. Our curriculum is built on the belief that children will excel when given the opportunity to explore and create within their classroom. Our experienced faculty provides the right environment to help children grow emotionally, socially, cognitively and physically. We look forward to establishing a long-term relationship with you and your family. The best way to understand our program is to visit our state of the art facility and see our classes in action!

Our History

Windham Cooperative Kindergarten and Nursery School was founded in 1966, as a non-profit organization, by a group of concerned mothers who saw the need for quality Preschool education. In September 2016, we will be celebrating our 50thAnniversary! We continue today, as in the past, to provide the community with quality Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten, Pre-School Enrichment and Kindergarten Enrichment programs. The Windham Co-op provides a warm and nurturing environment that fosters the development of the whole child. Our programming promotes emotional, cognitive, social, gross motor and fine motor growth.

Our Mission

Windham Cooperative Kindergarten and Nursery School is a preschool based on a developmental philosophy. We believe that each child deserves the opportunity to explore their environment and construct their knowledge with the love and support of their teachers and families. We respect every child at each phase of its growth in all areas of development including social, emotional, physical and educational. We also nurture and support each child’s family relationships.

Our Developmental Philosophy

Windham Cooperative Kindergarten and Nursery School believes in a child-centered approach. This enables children to build knowledge through each of their senses with a wide range of hands-on learning experiences. Our curriculum is developed to foster each child’s imagination, curiosity, and intellect. The activities are designed to be developmentally appropriate and appeal to a broad group of learners.
