Cutest idea for tomorrow!

☘️ Hey,

Over the next few weeks, many of us will be increasing our time spent at home. I was thinking about a way for our community to still get outside and do something fun while still keeping a safe distance.

On St Patrick's day, let's have a neighborhood ☘️ Shamrock Hunt for the kids in the community☘️

☘️ All you have to do is put a Shamrock in your window on March 17th. ☘️ That's it! Color it, paint it, cut it out, print it from a computer, whatever.

Then we can get outside, walk around and see how many Shamrocks we can find! I know my small kids will get a kick out of find Shamrocks.

It's easy, no human contact. Get fresh air. No toilet paper necessary. Just put a ☘️ Shamrock in your window and let the kids find them.
Miss Stacey is a trooper!!!!
Is the park meet up for today still on? We are here, at Phillippi Park, and no one is here.

We were hoping to meet some classmates!
This article talks about all the reasons our play-based preschool does what it does! We foster all five of the important social competencies mentioned.

"While early education creates an important foundation for academic skills, many parents would be surprised to know that social skills are actually far more predictive of outcomes into adulthood than early academics."
One of the many reasons we love BCP. The focus on development of the whole child vs. fact memorization makes a huge difference in their future success. I am so thankful our teachers understand and embrace the importance of those social-emotional skills.

My BCP grad daughter (now in first grade) was not the smartest/best at everything in her kindergarten class, but she was constantly praised for being a good friend, for showing empathy and caring about her classmates, for being able to self-regulate and manage her emotions in a productive way. THAT is the building block for a successful school experience. ❤️
We are so lucky our teachers provide numerous activities daily that are well thought out and focus on developmental appropriateness 💙♥️💙

Boise Cooperative Preschool (BCP) was established in 1973 & offers a non-profit, play-based classroom

Operating as usual

Work time for a few parents at the new location means play time for the littles.


Calling all creative kiddos! Our new 3/4 teacher, Hailey, will also be teaching our brand new art exploration class on Tuesday and Thursdays from 12:10-2:40. Pair this with the T/Th mornings for a full day or MWF afternoon class for 5 days to round out your kiddos experience.


Meet Liza! She’s our new STEM teacher, and we’re very excited to have her on our team for the 2023-2024 school year! Below is a little bio about our amazing new teacher! Welcome, Liza!

“Liza moved to Boise from Jackson, Wyoming last Spring. She was a loyal nanny to a family in Jackson for many years. Once in Boise, she began working as a garden teacher at The Idaho Botanical Gardens. She helped lead the garden’s summer STEM camps, creating fun, hands on activities, where children could learn through play, and getting their hands dirty. Liza loves spending time with her rescue dog, Betsy. She spends her free time hiking, backpacking, skiing, gardening, and spending time on the water. Liza is so excited to join the BCP community.”


BCP family! Meet Hailey, our new 3/4 and art teacher extraordinaire!

Hailey is excited to meet your child and introduce them to the magic of preschool and learning! Hailey has a son in 2nd grade and a daughter in preschool. Before becoming a parent, she taught 6th grade, directed a K-6 after school program, and taught English online. Since being a parent she has helped run a neighborhood preschool co-op, volunteered as a weekly art teacher at Valley View Elementary, currently serves on the PTO and absolutely has loved it all. She graduated from Weber State University with a degree in elementary education. She and her husband will be celebrating their 11th anniversary this year. They love biking the Greenbelt, eating STIL ice cream/Chip cookies, and hiking the foothills. She *loves* the classroom atmosphere and is excited to be a part of the BCP community.


Don’t forget to meet up this coming Monday!!!


Happy Father’s Day to all of our dads, grandpas, step dads, and uncles in our community! We love you dads!


We know it’s summer & you’re enjoining the wonderful weather…but your little ones will thank you!

When one of the kiddos mama is a yoga instructor, then Miss Lisa’s STEM classes gets to stretch and get some energy out in a healthy way.


We have the most amazing, hard working, passionate teachers at BCP!! This week is teacher appreciation week! Show your teachers how much you appreciate their hard work! Have your child make a card, bring in a little treat, or just tell your teacher they are amazing!

Phew! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, vacation flew by way too fast! I’ve got a good one for you, though! Highlighting Miss Sarah, our newest teacher at BCP!🎉🥳 Welcome Sarah, we’re so excited to have you on the team!!

Hi! My name is Sarah Jordan but all my preschoolers call me Miss Sarah. I have been teaching preschool in my home for almost 15 years and love watching young minds as they soak up knowledge. I am SO excited to be teaching one of the 3/4 classes at BCP this coming school year! My youngest daughter was a student at BCP last year and I served as the board president. We loved our experience at BCP and I really am looking forward to coming back as a teacher this year.
As you can see in my photos, I have a big family. So big I don't even have a current photo of all of us together. 😥 My husband, Matthew, and I have 8 children ranging in age from 21 - 5 years of age. We met at BYU in Provo. I graduated with a degree in English Secondary Education and he took his music degree a step further and became a board certified music therapist. He now has a music therapy company here in the Treasure Valley. We LOVE music in our house and I often joke that I have lived my whole married life in a musical.
A few more things about me? My favorite food is spaghetti. My favorite color is the deep blue of the ocean on a sunny day. I love being silly and reading mystery novels. I think the "happiest place on earth" is actually the ocean, not Disneyland! I can state this pretty certainly since I grew up close to both places. 😁 I only have 1 pet at the moment, a Beagle/Pinscher mix, but if it were up to only me every stray that crosses my path would come home to be loved by me. If I'm not washing mounds of dishes or laundry, reading in my favorite chair or creating fun lesson plans, you can find me out in my garden! This year I'm most proud of my garlic crop but the herb garden and pumpkin vines are coming along nicely.

Next up for our teacher spotlight is Ms. Lisa!! Ms. Lisa is an incredible teacher, and we can’t wait for another year with her!

Ms. Lisa is passionate about science, hands-on learning, and STEM based education. She believes that even the youngest members of our community can be “citizen scientists” and make important scientific contributions that help others. She has two daughters, now 11 and 14, who both attended BCP. After her own wonderful experience as a parent, she jumped at the opportunity to join the teaching staff when her youngest kiddo went to kindergarten. She loves working with preschoolers because they are naturally scientific thinkers; they are full of questions and innately use play to test the physics of the world around them!


It’s a beautiful day to enroll your child in preschool! Contact us for information or spots available! 🌞☮️🦋


I mean, I just pretend like I want to stay all day, then suddenly my kids want to leave😄
Who is going to the park tomorrow?!
