Cottage Co-op Nursery School was founded in 1972 as a non-profit, cooperative preschool by former Pacific Oaks parents who were inspired to create a co-operative school that honored Pacific Oaks' approach to learning while extending its benefits to the whole family.

  • Serves children 2 years through entry into Kindergarten

  • Small class sizes 

  • Low adult:child ratios of 1:3 for our younger students and 1:4 for our older preschoolers



Cottage Co-op Nursery School is an intimate community of families and teachers that embraces child-directed, creative play and nourishes our children’s curiosities that nurtures social and emotional development, teaching key conflict resolution skills, that depends on, and supports, active parent participation in our school and accepts and celebrates the uniqueness of us all.
