Welcome to Ann Arbor Nursery!

Our school

Ann Arbor Nursery Inc. is a non-sectarian preschool cooperatively operated by and for its members since 1938. Our mission is to create a friendly and safe environment for children to grow and learn, to develop independence, self confidence, self-awareness, and awareness of others. The preschool provides structured opportunities to develop decision-making skills. The parents and the teacher work together to guide the children to explore and develop cognitive, social, emotional, and creative capabilities through the magic of play; parents become better teachers to their children by participating first hand in their child’s education. We are committed to high-quality education at a low cost. Ann Arbor Nursery Inc. is a nurturing community in which families share the responsibility for the education of their children.

The Benefits of Being Part of a Co-operative School

"Being in the classroom gives parents a chance to see how their child interacts with others, how other children behave, and how teachers respond in a developmentally- appropriate way."

"Cooperative schools, because of the way the school has been organized, follow an empowerment model for parent involvement. Parents are not seen as a threat or as something that’s slowing down the learning process, as is implied in the deficit model, but as playing an integral role in their child’s or children’s education."
