It's not just a school -- it's a great community. You work with parents and teachers in the classroom, so your child has the benefit of 9 adults in the classroom every day (ratio better than 1 adult to every 3 children). There are chickens, bunnies, rats and fish -- cared for communally. Parenting meetings (a general topic every month + a meeting with your workday team). Great events outside of the classroom that involve the whole family. Field trips, too! You get the opportunity to meet and work with great teachers and parents who are at the same stage of parenting. Classroom work really prepares for Kindergarten: conflict resolution, sharing, working and playing with others, participating in circle time, sharing a snack, using manners, basic math skills (sorting, counting, etc.), communication skills (using words, listening, etc.) animal phonics in the PM class -- all in a play-based environment. Teachers who really care! It's a great place to be a preschooler -- and a pre-school family.
CCNS is a wonderful place to experience the preschool years with your child. The school has an AMAZING yard, great resources, and the best teachers you could ever ask for. What sets CCNS apart from other schools is that parents gain as much from the program as their children do. I have made lasting friendships with other moms, and the Parent Education program has given me confidence in my parenting skills. My daughter was not only 100% prepared for kindergarten, but she also learned conflict resolution and social skills that will last a lifetime. Cupertino Co-op truly is a special place!
I put my 3 year old daughter into this preschool on the advice of a co-worker whos son had previously attended. WOW, this place is great! The teachers are nice and obviously enjoy working with children. The rooms are brightly colored. The playground is HUGE! And the tuition rates are low. I highly recommend sending your child to, Small World Academy!
My 2 year old enjoys going to her day care. She is very well cared for and never wants to leave at the end of the day. The teacher is very caring and is very passionate about kids. She has really good activities planned for kids including music, dance, arts and crafts. I am so glad I found this place.
Wonderful co-op preschool. Excellent director and teachers; well-run organization. Great family events like Winter Festival (with snow!), camp-out with Dad, and movie night.
Awsome School! Great Teachers! my son loves this school.
Fun and learning in supportive environment.
