Our Mission

The Great Barrington Cooperative Preschool is a non-profit school founded in 1972. Our mission is to provide children and families in the Southern Berkshires with an affordable, high-quality, arts-based preschool experience that serves every aspect of a child’s growth and development.


We offer a program for young children that aims to educate the whole child. Our program emphasizes social and emotional growth while giving careful attention to cognitive and physical development. We emphasize independence in a nurturing environment, learning through experience, and the exploration of diverse subjects through the arts.

Why a Co-Op?

At the Co-op we celebrate the whole family as well as the individual child. Parent participation is the distinguishing characteristic of a cooperative school and our unique sense of community sets us apart from other programs. The collaborative effort of parents and teachers creates a caring and close-knit environment in which the children thrive.
