Established in 1939, Morris Plains Cooperative Play School (“The Co-op”) is the oldest cooperative preschool in New Jersey. We are a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian, state-licensed preschool with certified teachers. Since the beginning, we have provided an exceptional educational environment for children, parents, and teachers to learn and grow together while families actively participate in their child’s preschool education.
The Morris Plains Cooperative Play School is committed to developing the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of each child through developmentally appropriate education. Our school’s child-centered philosophy is based on a flexible approach to early education, a positive approach to discipline, a commitment to parent education, and the belief that children learn best through play.
