    Flagstaff Cooperative Preschool

    We are a parent-run cooperative preschool as identified by the International Cooperative Alliance. We were founded in 1962 when a group of interested parents decided their children needed the experience of a preschool education. These parents hired a professional teacher to begin our preschool program. In 1964, the school incorporated and in 1966 became a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation licensed by the State of Arizona.

    We offer a variety of opportunities for family members to work in the classroom or to participate in, or other-wise contribute, to the preschool. This has been a very important part of our 45 years of success!

    We are also approved through DES, NAU and the NAVAJO NATION.  These organizations help families, who qualify, with financial assistance for preschool and child care.

    Mission Statement

    Flagstaff Cooperative Preschools mission is to develop the intellect, personality, body and heart of each
    child by creating an environment and experiences in tune with individual characteristics and family backgrounds.
    We promote interactive experiences while at play, and support the development of every child's
    self-esteem, self-reliance and positive view of life through family and community involvement.
