Our Curriculum for the 2019-2020 year

The Curriculum Reflects Our Values

Kent-Meridian Co-op Preschool is a play-based, parent-participation preschool.  We offer a unique opportunity for children to develop a positive self esteem and love for learning. In our preschool environment, you will find a comfortable balance of carefully planned learning opportunities.  The total environment – physical setting, teacher, equipment, curriculum and time structure – is designed to communicate a feeling of welcome, acceptance, safety and security to young children.  Our experienced teachers provide a variety of developmentally appropriate activities designed to promote the growth of the whole child.  An equally important component of the K-M program is our parent education classes, which are facilitated by instructors with a wealth of experience in parenting issues.  Class activities vary with each teacher and class age level, but the organization of each class has been summarized below:
