Cooperative Nursery School

Where Play is at the Heart of Learning


For young children, play is the key to all learning. Through play children explore their environment, learn problem-solving skills, experience the first steps in social-emotional development. They begin to learn about social interactions, compromise, and how to work together.

Cedar Lane Nursery School is a cooperative preschool where parents and kids play and learn together. Children are naturally motivated to play. Cedar Lane uses this motivation to facilitate learning and to enhance developmental learning outcomes. Our goal is to set up children for success in the 21st Century by teaching them the skills they need.
