The DPR Cooperative Play Program (Co-Op) advances youth development using outcome based programming and developmentally appropriate practices in a creative and recreational play environment.

All children grow and develop in different stages. Through structured play and creative experiences, the DPR Cooperative Play Program assists in advancing youth development outcomes, which are the attitudes, knowledge, and behaviors that all children should strive to achieve. Our programming offers young children a solid foundation for emotional, physical, social, and intellectual growth.

Children are encouraged to explore and engage in all experiences offered with the help and guidance of their DPR Facilitator. Creativity within a play environment allows children to develop a positive identity and demonstrate increased abilities associated with knowledge and skills.

The 2023-24 program year begins September 5, 2023, and ends May 17, 2024. The program meets Monday through Friday, 9 am until 12 pm. Click below for active locations.
