Boise Cooperative Preschool is extremely proud of our outstanding and dedicated teaching staff, many of whom were once themselves, parents of BCP students. Our staff meets all state requirements for their positions and every teacher has had many years of experience working with children. As a cooperative preschool, our student’s learning environment is also enriched by the loving involvement of parent volunteers in the classroom. You can learn a bit about our staff below, but more importantly, please come and visit so that we can meet you in person.

Korey is originally from Coeur d’Alene but has called Boise home for the past 21 years. She and her husband, Eric, enjoy spending time with their 18-year-old daughter, Hadley, and 11-year-old son, Keaten. They keep Korey very busy with all of their extracurricular activities. Swimming pools, softball, and baseball fields are their second homes! Both of Ms. Korey’s children spent their preschool years at this wonderful school and she is so happy to be in her third year at BCP. Ms. Korey has a BA in Multidisciplinary Studies with Leadership and Human Relations Certificate from Boise State University. She absolutely enjoys the community atmosphere at BCP and helping students grow. BCP’s play-based structure helps to ensure that students are ready to be independent, courteous, and kind citizens in their future adventures.
