This what we are working on today and we are excited to tour the neighborhood tomorrow!

Neighbors! Let’s do this! Tag your neighbors below.

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 💙♥️💙
"Children are naturally motivated to play. A play-based program builds on this motivation, using play as a context for learning. In this context, children can explore, experiment, discover and solve problems in imaginative and playful ways."
"Play is linked to growth in memory, self-regulation, language, andsymbol recognition."


This a great read on the importance of play in a preschool setting!

Boise Cooperative Preschool (BCP) was established in 1973 and offers a non-profit, play-based classroom community of teachers and parents working together support the child’s explorations and discoveries.

33 Reasons to Choose a Play-Based Preschool, Not an Academic One 03/08/2021

33 Reasons to Choose a Play-Based Preschool, Not an Academic One

33 Reasons to Choose a Play-Based Preschool, Not an Academic One Parents in the US are enthralled with academic preschools, buying into the belief that earlier is better. However, research shows that play is how kids learn best. It enhances their imaginations, promotes exploration, increases vocabulary, and builds social skills.

Boise Cooperative Preschool was founded on the principles of listening to one another, working cooperatively with one another and making this world a better place for our children. We hear and see the frustration from our community and this world. We are committed more than ever before to encourage our students to practice kindness, empathy and inclusivity; and invite our members to do the same. We will work to examine our practices of inclusivity in the teaching, experiences, and community we build. We will listen and learn from each other as well as have tough conversations in order to help bring about change. Each of us can help bring change to this valley.

General information

Our Preschool classes are offered for children 2 to 5 years old. Each class is conducted by a highly-qualified, experienced teacher in early education with a college degree. The youngest learners are focused on socialization with their peers. Your child will grow to master kindergarten readiness skills and become in touch with their emotions. One fun, newer activity is having the students prepare their snacks, occasionally. The greatest aspect is the community that is formed through parents’ hands-on involvement in the classroom. Aside from our regular classes, BCP gives their students opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. Currently, we have a Spanish Music Class and a visit from the Magic Tumble Bus Gymnastics, weekly.
