Be there for your children's first learning experience. Be there as they make their first friends, learn how to be a part of a group and build their confidence.
Build close relationships with the teachers, other parents and your child's classmates. When you are working with other parents and learn from our teachers, relationships build naturally as you help each other and your children to learn and grow. I can't imagine my life without the amazing friends we've made at Cedar Cross.
Learn through play. Here at Cedar Cross we believe children learn best through play. Our curriculum is set up in a way where the learning experience is embedded in our environment and activities.
Potty Trained is NOT a Requirement
Sibling Co-op allows parents that need care for younger siblings to be a part of our co-op by working together to take turns watching each others children and provide the same opportunity to another family.
What about our teachers?
Our teachers are amazing, and have been with us for 15+ years. All of them. Our Pre-K Teacher (Teacher Correne) has been with us for more than 20 years and has a Masters in Early Childhood Education. Learn more about our teachers here.
What is a cooperative preschool?
A cooperative preschool like Cedar Cross is run by the parents. In our case the school is sponsored by Cedar Cross Church, and the sole employees of the preschool are the teachers. Everything else you see happen is done by a parent from administration to accounting and payroll, from event planning to cleaning. We make it all happen!

What our parents say?
Cedar Cross Cooperative Preschool has been a fantastic stepping stone for my daughter into the school environment! She has blossomed over the past year, made friends, learned more patience, worked on small and large motor activities, and truly loves going to preschool! She tells me that "Preschool is cool!" Most importantly, she is building her confidence every day! All the teachers are caring, knowledgeable people and I feel great about enrolling my daughters.
Noelle (Pre-K Mom)
My family is not part of the church or Christian. However they treat my daughter like one of their own. What an accepting wonderful group of parents. My daughter loved her teacher; teacher Lesa who did a fantastic job.

Best preschool ever! From the lovely teachers to the school's philosophy to the co-op format, Cedar Cross Preschool was a great fit for our family.
Michelle (CCCP Mom)
Our little one loves Cedar Cross Co-op!! Teacher Lesa is wonderful (3's class)! We can't wait to see what the 4's class has in store for us this year :)
Stephanie (3's Mom)
I love the program at Cedar Cross Preschool. When I was looking for a preschool, this one fit all my requirements. I wanted a play based, faith enriched, co-op. This preschool is all that and more. I have also found a wonderful community of families and made some life long friends for myself along the way!

Loved Cedar Cross Co-op Preschool! My kids are now in high school and college but the same amazing teachers are still there as when my now freshman was there. Great preschool experience for my kids and me.
