The Children’s Cooperative Playschool is a small Chapel Hill preschool with a home-like atmosphere and a low child-to-teacher ratio. We are a group of about 45 families who wish to actively participate in our children’s early school experience. The Co-op preschool has been in existence for over 45 years serving families in the Chapel Hill/Durham area.  We offer a family-oriented early learning experience for children eighteen months to five years of age. We strive to provide a safe, nurturing, and accepting environment in which children are encouraged to develop social, emotional, cognitive, and motor skills through play. The Playschool admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.

Children's Cooperative Playschool former member, Kelly Reilly, shared her family's experience at the co-op in the News & Observer:
