Love it!  My daughter has been there for three years and sadly it's her last year.  Starting my son in the fall!  Great nurturing atmosphere.  I also love the co-op part, you get to see the day to day routines & get to know the kids.  Can't recommend it enough!



Love, love, love it!  Can's say enough about the wonderful, nurturing staff.  The kids learn so much through play based activities, my son was so well prepared for kindergarten!  We have one more year there with our daughter and I will be so sad to leave!



I loved the small class size and low student/adult ratio.  (CCP had the lowest of all the preschools I looked at.)  I felt that was very important for my children's first school experience.

CCP has many unique/positive offerings one may not find at other preschools.  Three that I particularly appreciated were:  1) School-wide events where the 3 & 4 yo kids prepare songs and decor for and have the opportunity to speak in front of the school and families.  2) Opportunities for parents to meet each other, build community, and learn from each other and the teachers strategies to enhance one's own parenting and to work with other children.  (I probably wouldn't be a Girl Scout leader now if it wasn't for CCP.)  3) Classrooms for 1 & 2 yo.  This helps kids who are very attached to their parents learn to bond with other trusting adults, social skills, and lots of motor skill development.



My daughters have been here for 4 years now and I could go on and on about our positive experience.  The teachers are so wonderful.  My oldest was definately prepared for kindergarten both academically and socialy.  I highly recommend!

Loved it!  The co-op piece was a great way to get to know the other families and is also reflective of the type of learning (through play and cooperation) that is modeled.



"We go there and love it! I can't say enough great things about the teachers and our experience there! (All 3 of my kids have been through, on our last kid going into the 4 yr old room) It is one of Reading's hidden gems!"

"We absolutely LOVE it. Can't say enough good things. Love the co-op part; its great to see what the kids are doing. The teachers really seem to love the kids. Its a home away from home."
-Pam, posted on Facebook
"We love CCP as well! 2 of my boys are alumni and I have 1 boy there now in the 3 year old room. I love that it's learning through play and not just worksheet after worksheet etc. Wonderful, caring and nurturing teachers - they know all the kids by name and so do most of the parents because of the coop aspect. It really is a "family" atmosphere and my boys love it there."
-Amy, post from Facebook
CCP is our extended family. Each time I drop my kids off, I feel confident they are in the safest and most caring environment possible! We have happily been part of CCP for almost 5 years now. All 3 of my kids and I have enjoyed the unique co-operative experience. Through volunteering in the classes once per month I have gotten to know all of the teachers, children, and parents well. It is very special that I have been able to see the daily routine and how much each child grows in so many ways. We have made some lifelong friends and memories that we will always treasure. I love how CCP has the perfect balance between learning and play in the comfort of real classrooms. The teachers are all warm, enthusiastic, and fun! They go above and beyond with their creativity and love for the children. The sense of community here is like no other school. Through various events such as the Thanksgiving feast, Christmas show, Ice Cream Social, and Year End Picnic, we have met so many wonderful families and feel so connected to everyone. I am very passionate about CCP and the wonderful teachers here. I highly recommend this school to everyone!

Being in a cooperative preschool gave us an instant community of friends! We were new to town when we started at CCP and didn't have many friends. However, once I started helping in the classrooms, I soon met many parents that shared the same values. The teachers are all fantastic and devote themselves fully to the children. The environment is very warm and friendly and my children always were so happy to go to school. All three of our children went to CCP and we are now on to elementary school. We will never forget the wonderful experience we had here and so thrilled that both my children and my husband and I have made many life long friends! Thank you CCP!

As a busy new mom, I enjoyed getting to know other moms and their children! Ten years ago, my oldest daughter met her best friend at CCP. Since then, my son and youngest daughter have gone here too. The school has a kitchen where the teachers cook with the kids. The staff is aware of food allergies and will make accomodations if you talk to them. I like how the snacks are stored at the school so I don't have to pack one for my child everyday. I also like the "lunch bunch" option to extend the day to 1 PM. The educational wing of the church has plenty of windows and provides lots of indoor play space for walks, a slide and bikes and a change of scenery for music or special activities. CCP has a loving atmosphere with plenty of classroom toys and activities. The teachers keep the kids interested and learning to play nicely with friends. Being involved in my child's school also gave me a better idea of the range of normal behavior for preschoolers. I have also learned some good recipies, parenting tips and fun craft activites here! My kids learned through play here at CCP and have transitioned easily to elementary school. We were so lucky that the school enrolled infants too! It allowed us to have all our young children here. I have always found a comforting support at CCP!
