Since 1961, the Unitarian Universalist Early Education Cooperative preschool (UUEEC) has provided a child-centered, play-based early education program for children ages 2 to 5 years old. Their experienced, highly qualified educators create learning environments that celebrate each unique developmental stage. As a parent-participation preschool, UUEEC believes in the importance of raising children in community and intentionally fostering relationships that can last a lifetime for both children and parents.
Years ago, I followed the lead of our publisher, Karen Barr, and then assistant editor Lisa Sorg-Friedman (writer/photographer Dan Friedman’s wife) and enrolled both of my children at UEEC. Sean and Juliann, my husband Bobby and I all enjoyed the co-operative preschool environment, which allows time for parents and/or grandparents to participate in daily activities. The co-op also provides ongoing parent education.
UUEEC currently is enrolling students ages 2 to 5 for the fall 2012 semester.
You can try out the cooperative preschool experience during “Coffee & Play: Preschool Preview” on Tuesday, April 24. Bring your toddler or preschooler with you from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. Meet other parents over a cup of coffee and let your little one experience a typical morning of fun, hands-on learning. Explore classrooms with your child, meet the experienced teachers and talk to currently enrolled parents and their children.
