Our Programs
Nurturing a fun learning experience since 1973!

Boise Cooperative Preschool

(BCP) was established in 1973 and as a non-profit corporation run by parents.  Their vision was to create a nurturing and affordable experience for the young learner. BCP offers a play-based classroom community of teachers and parents.  Together they support the child’s explorations and discoveries. BCP provides a safe, stimulating, and fun environment for children to develop socially, emotionally, creatively, and physically. There is emphasis on the process of learning rather than a specific result. Every child and parent who belongs to the Boise Cooperative Preschool is valued and supported.

Classes Offered

Our Preschool classes are offered for children 2 to 5 years old. Each class is conducted by a highly-qualified, experienced teacher in early education with a college degree. The youngest learners are focused on socialization with their peers.  Your child will grow to master kindergarten readiness skills and become in touch with their emotions.  One fun, newer activity is having the students prepare their snacks, occasionally.  

The greatest aspect is the community that is formed through parents’ hands-on involvement in the classroom.  Aside from our regular classes, BCP gives their students opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities.  Currently, we have a Spanish Music Class and a visit from the Magic Tumble Bus Gymnastics, weekly.
