Town Hall Welcome Kits for New Families to Town Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community. These new families are looking for a new EVERYTHING! Town Hall contacts these new families each week as soon as they move into their new home. These new families will find new places to eat, work out, wash their car......they need a new Hair Salon, Spa, Auto Repair Shop, Optometrist, Dry Cleaner, Pet Groomer, Day Care Facility, Florist, Nail Salon, get the idea. They are actively seeking new local businesses and creating new purchasing patterns. They will become someone's next new local, loyal customer. Town Hall will direct them to you before your competition even knows they are here. Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one business per category, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits. I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail. Please reply to this email with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience. For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature. Thanks. Karla Cain (540) 664-5514

Sadly our school was forced to close in our 50th year. Our students and families remain in our hearts.

Cooperative Preschool of Loudoun (“CPL”) formerly known as Winnie the Pooh Preschool, has been a cooperative since it was first organized in 1969. CPL strives to provide your child with a positive preschool experience in an environment where parents and teachers work together to meet each child’s individual needs. The school is operated on a private, nonsectarian, nonracial basis and at the lowest possible costs consistent with the school’s goals and programs. This provides parents the opportunity to participate with their child in this first major step away from home. It is the goal of CPL to provide each child, according to their own temperament and needs, with supervised play and social and emotional learning experiences with children their own age. The children will have the opportunity to learn to respect and accept the rights and also the differences of others. They will be presented with art, music, books and creative projects that are geared to their age level. Through various activities, the child will learn about the world around him (her) and develop a feeling of belonging and security. It is the goal of CPL to develop a child who is ready for primary school education, and complement, not replace, early learning between parent and child.

Mission: CPL offers children a program based on the following sound education principles: 1. Individual acceptance: It is important for each child to be accepted as they are. Each child is helped to develop their own capabilities at their own rate of progress 2. Freedom within limits: Children need to know that there are limits beyond which they cannot go. They need order to their day. They also need freedom to play – their imagination and curiosity need room to wander. 3. A child-sized world: Children need to find themselves in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where they can explore, share, play, and communicate with others their own age. 4. Parent participation: Parents come to school regularly, not merely to visit, but to participate and to observe. The parents learn about their own children in a broader perspective. The parent can observe other adults and other methods. Through close association with professionally trained teachers, parents acquire specialized skills and greater understanding of their children and their children’s peer group. 5. Three-way sharing: In a cooperative preschool, one finds fellowship. Child-parent-teacher sharing furthers the adult’s understanding of children and facilitates the children’s adjustment to their first school experience. The parents are also working together to provide the best possible preschool experience for their children at a minimum cost.

[04/03/20]   It is with great sadness that after 50 years, The Cooperative Preschool of Loudoun (formerly Winnie the Pooh Preschool) will be closing its doors permanently. We are forever grateful for all of the families and children who have been a part of our school - together we created a loving and supportive environment in which our children have learned and built lasting friendships. The cooperative spirit of our school will remain in us and in the hearts of our children 💛

Even our youngest friends feel our anxiety even when we do our best not to show it.

Kids upset and acting out? Remember there’s more to the story than just what we see.
