Through the Cooperative Play Program, young children ages 18 months to 5 years old, are introduced to a structured play setting with activities that engage the whole child mentally, socially, physically, and emotionally in preparation for entering the formal education system. Emphasis is placed on socialization such as learning to take turns; cognitive growth through music, painting, and cutting; and gross motor development by running and jumping. All parents and guardians also serve duty days (usually one day per week, per child) to assist with organizing, implementing, and planning of activities.
