Co-op Family Center

At the Co-op, we support children's natural process of learning through inquiry by guiding them as they learn to OBSERVE, INVESTIGATE, COMMUNICATE and ENJOY the world within and around them.

Parent Participation

There are plenty of ways to help out and add to the community at the center.


Fundraising for the Co-op can be easy and rewarding.

Reggio-Inspired Philosophy

“Children possess extraordinary potentials for learning and change, as well as extensive affective, relational, sensory, and intellectual resources that manifest in an ongoing exchange with the cultural and social context. Each child is the subject of rights, first and foremost possessing the right to be respected and valued in his or her own identity, uniqueness, difference, and in his or her own rhythms of growth and development.”

- “Indications, Preschools and Infant-Toddler Centres of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia”, 2.1 Children are active protagonists of their growth and processes, (2010)
