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 9:30-12:30, at our location in 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-learing and able to attend school without a diaper.
