We are an independently operated private school and we have taught the love of learning to young children for over 50 years. Our policies are established by parent volunteers elected to the Board of Directors and by regulations of the Department of Health and Family Services of Wisconsin.
Our curriculum balances socialization and academic readiness with fully certified teachers. We are also a vendor site for the Racine Unified School District's four year old Kindergarten program.
Our unique outdoor environment includes: play area, a nature trail and tricycle track (with brand new tricycles).
The Racine Cooperative Nursery School was formed in 1956 by a small group of parents who wanted to provide their children with a meaningful preschool experience that fostered parent involvement in operation and program. The school opened October 1, 1956 and was granted a state license in January 1959. In May of 1970 we moved into our present location at 2500 North Green Bay Road. Through the years, we have served over 4,000 preschoolers.
In 2006, the school celebrated its 50th anniversary, as well as, began a
relationship with the Racine Unified School District as a vendor site for the
four year old kindergarten program.
We are proud of our history, the quality of our teachers, equipment and housing, and grateful to all the parents who have contributed to make the school the best it can be. As members, we are much like a family in that we all want the best for the organization. As a family we must act as one and achieve the ultimate in educational benefit for our children, the children of the future. Racine Cooperative Preschool has been an example to others of an outstanding, truly cooperative preschool, and as the current membership we shall strive to maintain that level of excellence.
What is a Co-Op?
Racine Cooperative Preschool's mission is to foster the development of a strong family unit by involving parents in the early education of their children.
The success and value of any parent cooperative Preschool depends on the
conscientious effort of each parent. Racine Co-op is a serious educational
project for both parent and child, requiring dedication and commitment of time,
talent, and energy of each individual member. The benefits for you and your
child will more than compensate for the day-to-day work involved in keeping the
Preschool functioning. Co-op parents have the privilege of seeing their
children interact in a classroom setting.
