Glen Cairn Cooperative Preschool is such a hidden Gem in our community. Both of my children went there and LOVED it, not only is it a school it is a small extension of our family. My son went to the school for 1 year and transitioned beautifully into full day 4 year old kindergarten I am so happy that the only tears were mine!
I visited a few other preschools before visiting this one, but the minute I walked in I knew this was the one. The teachers are wonderful. They love the children and are so kind and warm to the families. There are always different fun activities and lots of learning moments. My oldest daughter spent 2 years at the preschool and my youngest 1.They are now 8 and 5 and are both still talking about Jane, Shelly and Kim.
GCCP will always hold a special place in my heart. I am certain that my girls easy transition to Kindergarten was in large part due to social skills gained through creative learning and play and the incredible support they received in a positive environment at GCCP from the dedicated and caring teachers. I highly recommend GCCP to anyone looking for a great preschool.
After our son was diagnosed with Autism, we were scared and didn’t know where to go or what to do. Thankfully we found GCPS! They took us in with open arms. The ladies not only helped our son with socialization and communication, but helped us realize that he was fine and was capable of so much more than we realized. During a very scary diagnosis and transition, the ladies were a shoulder to cry on, a wealth of knowledge to grab from and somewhere our son could go to be safe and happy.

This is the second year my daughter is attending and am more than confident that she is ready to take JK by storm next year…am thankful for the support and caring kindness of the teachers. They really love the children and believe in positive reinforcement which is in my opinion how it should be…recommend this preschool to everyone looking to enroll their child:)
All four of our boys went through GCCP over six years. Six years! That alone is a testament to how much value and trust we put into the teachers and programs at GCCP. The engaging, relaxed yet nurturing environment created the best foundation for our kids’ development. As parents, you never know what to expect when it comes to entrusting others with your children, but at GCCP there was never any doubt. We truly miss our GCCP family!

Both our boys attended GCCP and we loved every second of it. It really is such a great program that encourages children to inquire, learn and start the process of following routines. My boys loved the chance to foster some independence and seamlessly integrated into kindergarten. We were sad to move on after 4 years but we still very much feel part of the GCCP family.
