We chose The Co-op because of their approach to learning through play, and we are continually impressed with how much our children are learning and growing. The teachers and staff constantly go above and beyond, showing how much they truly care for the kids and their families. We highly recommend The Co-op to anyone looking for an incredible preschool experience!
We are so happy with the learning experiences provided at The Co-op. The staff make each child feel welcome, safe, and important. They experience learning through play, arts and crafts, handwriting, singing, stories, and so much more. The best part is being able to be the co-oping parent, where you get to be a part of your child’s learning and development. It’s a wonderful place for children and families!

We love The Co-op! We chose this school because they believe in play as the primary way children learn in the preschool years. Children are encouraged to ask questions, make their own choices, and teachers truly listen and care about each and every child. The Co-op is a little gem in Morris Plains and I would recommend it to any parent!
The Co-op is a wonderful learning environment. All of the teachers and parents work together for the success and happiness of the students. My son was extremely prepared for Kindergarten. Couldn’t have picked a better school.
This little school holds a piece of my heart! My kids have been going there for 8 years and this is my last year with my youngest in the pre-k class. The play-based cooperative model is such a loving, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate way for these preschoolers to learn. As a pediatric occupational therapist, I know how important play is for kids in this age group. That’s how they learn at this age, and the Morris Plains Co-op has mastered this perfectly! I highly recommend this sweet school for your kids to learn through play and grow in a wonderful loving and engaging environment.
The Morris Plains Co-op was the perfect introduction to education for my children. All the teachers are amazing. The progression of classes beginning with 2-morning, leading all the way up to 4-morning with lunch, allowed my daughter to advance at a natural pace while still acquiring all the necessary skills for a smooth transition into Kindergarten. The Pre-K curriculum taught my daughter social skills, science and handwriting, with an emphasis on creativity and learning through play. Because of the solid foundation provided by the Co-op, my child was ready, excited and now excelling in Kindergarten.
This school has felt like home for the past 6 years! The Co-op is a special place and such a nurturing environment for kids to learn and grow. We love the kind teachers and staff who have become like family. My kids loved going to school and never wanted to leave. We will miss this little red schoolhouse, but we are lucky enough to have such fond memories that will last us a lifetime.
My oldest graduated Pre-k with the skills needed for kindergarten and then some! My youngest is following in big brother’s footsteps. Creative learning through play, a great staff and involved parents sealed the deal for us in making the Co-op our playschool of choice.
I am so proud to call the Morris Plains Co-op my kids’ school. Whether you’re working parents or have one at home, there is no question it is an amazing place to be!
We love the Co-op! It’s the best place for kids to have fun and learn with all the wonderful teachers and people around them! My son and myself had a great time there! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone hoping to send their kids to have a great time!
The Co-op is an amazing place to to play and learn. An excellent choice for any parent looking for a way to be involved in their child’s preschool experience.
This is our first year at the co-op and it sure won’t be our last!! My daughter actually cries when I have to pick her up!! Love this place.
My 3 children went here and they had the best first school experience anyone could ever hope for!
Morris Plains Co-op Play School is a fantastic school with excellent teachers, parents and kids!
Great pre-school, love being involved, knowing the kids, parents and teachers on such a personal level.
The Co-op has impacted our lives in such a positive manner. In our everyday occurrences, either a lesson from the co-op, song or staff member has popped into conversation. My daughter absolutely loves going to the co-op and I believe she will remember her experiences their for a very long time.
