Giving to The Cooperative School

Your generosity demonstrates a commitment to early childhood education and the value of an arts-based, play-based, and nature-infused experience for all children. Your gift also supports the ways in which the Cooperative School stands apart from others: a distinctive curriculum, parent education and a supportive community.

In 2017 we celebrate our 75th anniversary, inspiring us not only to look back but also forward. Your tax-deductible contribution will help our parents and staff realize the vision of an expanded program for ages 2 through 8 — and allow us to continue sending children “through the garden gate” for another 75 years.

Please consider making a gift to The Cooperative School today or in observance of Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017!


Your donation will support our community collaboration programs for educators, parents, care providers, and college students while building outreach opportunities to welcome more families.


Your donation will advance our plans to grow to meet the changing needs of the community.


Your donation will enable us to expand our platform for progressive, cooperative education in Takoma Park. A new site will allow for more classes, full day options, and a robust summer program for area youth.

Any amount is appreciated. We will put every dollar to work.
