Involvement in a Parent Education Co-op Preschool is also available for parents of two- to five-year-olds at any of the above community co-op preschools. Coop preschools start in September and end in May. Depending on the ages of children, classes vary in time and length. Usually, four-year-olds attend in the afternoon while two- and three-year-olds attend in the morning from two to four days each week. 

Teachers provide age appropriate experiences for the children and opportunities for parents to support their child's growing needs through planned classroom activities. The program is designed to benefit both parents and children. A typical class includes parent-supervised activities, such as music, snack and active times.

Each preschool has a required evening meeting once per month. Co-op members discuss preschool business, classroom curricula and meet with the college instructor. These discussions include topics such as child development, classroom issues, current research and parenting topics.
