Welcome to A Child's View Cooperative Preschool.
Since its beginning in 1956, the school, formerly known as Oakland Cooperative, has been teaching the children and families of Bloomington-Normal to love learning.
The school is a state licensed non-profit organization, owned and operated by the parents of each school year. The cooperative environment provides the opportunity for children, parents, and teachers to learn together and from each other.
Children learn best through thoughtful curriculum, play, and social experiences.
Parents are a vital part of the school and should have opportunities to be involved in their child's education, interact with other parents, and represent the school at community events.
Teachers are creative, energetic, highly skilled, and committed to the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of students. They foster and embrace student and family diversity.
Creative expression of self through varied play, art, and music activities is encouraged. Through these experiences, physical and social skills are developed. We feel it is very important that our programs provide opportunities to promote a good self-image in each child. It is our goal that this positive atmosphere will enrich your child’s life and lead to a growing independence.
