Since 1957, Pine Grove has been a parent-run cooperative that integrates the best aspects of a play group with the educational structure of a developmentally appropriate pre-school program.
As a cooperative, Pine Grove parents assume responsibility for administering the school, for making policy decisions, and for maintaining the school and its equipment. Most important, parents participate in the classroom and work closely with the paid teachers and Director. Classroom participation is an integral part of the Pine Grove philosophy, enabling parents to be part of their childs preschool experience and to be informed and experienced members of the cooperative.
Our program is unique in that Pine Grove nurtures
not only the child, but the family as well. Through the sharing of responsibility for the entire school and through participating on a regular basis in the classroom, parents form a community of friendship and support that extends beyond the school.

At Pine Grove, we believe that a child’s sense of self-worth provides the strongest foundation for growth. We want children to feel a sense of community with others in their lives by experiencing parents, children and teachers working together. By creating a warm and accepting environment, we hope that our children will develop trust in others and feel the freedom to try out new ideas and actions.
We have a rich learning environment which gives a child many opportunities for social, emotional and physical growth. A skilled and sensitive staff encourages each child to develop his or her own potential in surroundings scaled to children’s needs. Our children can explore and experiment creatively with old and new concepts and materials. Through interaction with other children and adults, they learn to get along with others, to express their feelings, and to consider the feelings of other people.
