About Our Preschool
The Mascoma Cooperative Preschool is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization of parents and teachers working together to provide a positive learning experience for three and four year old children. Parents elected to the Board of Directors manage our preschool. The success of our school comes from parent interest and participation. Your child's safety and well being is as important to us as it is to you, therefore, sessions are well supervised by a teacher, teacher's assistant, and a classroom helper. We are located in the Community Lutheran Church (no affiliation) on South Main Street in Enfield, New Hampshire.
The Mascoma Cooperative Preschool was created with the belief that a child's sense of self, curiosity, and creativity benefit from positive learning experiences. An atmosphere of trust, encouragement, and praise allow students to explore their individual interests and abilities while developing social skills and building self-esteem. Learning takes place in a highly interactive environment with attention given to student's individual learning styles and development levels. The Cooperative allows students to benefit additionally by having family members share in their experiences and celebrate their growth throughout the year.
Our school is licensed by the State of New Hampshire. Our teacher and teacher's assistant have been chosen for their background in education, teaching experience, enthusiasm, and sensitivity to children and parents. A classroom helper (family member) also assists our teachers.
Membership is open to all children in the Upper Valley. Our preschool uses a calendar similar to that of Mascoma School District, generally starting in early September and running through the end of May.
Parents are encouraged to participate in various ways throughout the year. Parents serve as helpers in the classroom on a rotating volunteer basis. Participation gives each family the opportunity to develop a closer relationship with the school and their child.
