As the slogan states, YCP members are “working together for our children’s education.”, Parents of the children that attend Ypsilanti Cooperative Preschool own and operate the preschool. Under the guidance of our teacher, who is trained in early childhood education, the parents share in the responsibilities and joys of educating the children.
The benefits of parents operating and participating are wonderful. It makes for an easier transition for the children (and parents) to be away from home. Parents have the opportunity to see how their children interact with other kids their same age. And since the parents help so much, the tuition at Ypsilanti Cooperative Preschool is much lower than other types of preschools.
