My son loves the playschool! And I do too! When we first started, it offered the best possible opportunity for me (the mom) to slowly pull away, allowing him the chance to adjust to being away from me (which he hadn't experienced before). My son looks forward to going to playschool everyday, and speaks of the teachers, students, and the students' parents fondly.

We switched to BCP a few weeks into the school year last fall, from a more "traditional" preschool. My daughter seemed to have quite a lot of trouble fitting in with the teachers/program at the other school, according to the head teacher; however, since we would just drop our kids off and they would disappear into the classroom until the end of the school day, I never got to see firsthand what her issues/challenges were. Happily, from our first day at BCP I was encouraged to stay and be involved in my daughter's preschool education. Even my son, who was only a few months old when we started, was made to feel welcome and included in the school day whenever he was there with me. It has been both enlightening and gratifying to observe my daughter's behaviour in the classroom, and I feel much more confident about what to expect -- as well as what to tell her future teachers to expect -- when she starts public school next year. As for me, I found it very easy to include myself in the school, which has also deepened my connection to the community in a way that the previous four years of living in the neighbourhood didn't quite manage to do. Our family's lives have been immeasurably enriched by our involvement with BCP, and I am very much looking forward to my son starting his preschool years there soon!

My son has been going for 2 years and I feel like he is exceptionally prepared for kindergarten as a result. The cooperative nature of this school is what kept us coming back as parents and teachers are involved in the development of each child. It's also a great place to meet 'mommy' friends.

This was a great find for me and my daughter. The play-based curriculum fits perfectly with our family's belief in experiential learning. And the family-led separation and family participation was also important since we were new to the area, with no support system. Thus my daughter's attachment was very strong and a traditional drop-off would have been very difficult for us (and for any teachers involved). At the Coop, my daughter was able to gradually (and quicker than I expected) get used to playing other people without me and now she barely notices when I drop her off!
