Rancho Co-op Nursery School is a non-profit organization dedicated to seeing the preschool child blossom and the family bloom. A small community focused on play-based learning and parental participation, Rancho strives to provide a safe environment for preschool-aged children to explore the world around them.
Rancho operates September-May, Monday-Friday, from 9:30am -- 12:30pm.
We are located at Rancho Park, near the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center.
We accept children from 2 years and 9 months to Kindergarten-ready.
We have a mix-age classroom with a child to adult ratio of 4:1.
Children must be in the process of potty-learning and able to attend school without a diaper.
