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.
