Read what parents have to say about the Northaven Co-op experience.

Invaluable experience
<p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">&quot;Our children grow up so fast. &nbsp;I love that the co-op gives me an opportunity to actively assist my child&#39;s teacher. &nbsp;I can see firsthand what my son is learning, the friendships he is forming, and how he is maturing and developing. &nbsp;There are so many special moments that I would have missed if I weren&#39;t a Co-op parent!&nbsp; Co-op families are so special. &nbsp;While there is no typical co-op family, I love that we all share in the belief that being actively involved in our child&#39;s preschool not only helps the school...it provides invaluable experiences to our children and to our families.&quot; </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">H.K. &nbsp;Co-op parent &nbsp;2013-2015</span></span></p>
Truly a special place

“My children are thrilled to go to school and I am thrilled to take them since I know, first hand, the wonderful experiences they are enjoying each day.  The Co-op is truly a special place.”  

L.D. Co-op parent 2008-2015

Families who care

“I love the Northaven  Co-op because we are surrounded by families who want to take an active role in their children’s educational experience.”


C. S. Co-op parent since 2011.

Sharing the world around them

“Our whole family loves the co-op!  As a parent I get a chance to support the amazing hands on learning by helping in the classroom or fall carnival or on the board.  The teachers have detailed curriculum and lesson plans that develop the whole child from fine motor to the emotional, social and cognitive development.   They come home proud of their artwork and creations, ready to share what they have learned about the world around them. “

C.L. Co-op parent since 2011 

Love to be a Co-op Kid

“Not only does my child love being the “Co-op kid” when it’s my turn to help the teacher, but I also have the opportunity to share my talents and skills with other caring parents by serving on committees or the Board.”


 B.N. Co-op parent since 2008. 

Amazing Experience
Being in the classroom with my son has allowed me to get to know his classmates and their families as I never would have otherwise. I am also amazed by how much I've learned about being a better parent, just by watching my son's teacher (an expert!) interact with my son's class, first hand. We love the activities she puts together -- the curriculum is excellent. It's an amazing experience, and my son has loved every minute of it."  
M. N. Co-op parent 2013-2015
Unique insight into their intellectual, social, and emotional development.

“The Co-op gave my husband and me the extraordinary opportunity to be fully present in our sons’ classrooms and engage in their educational experience first-hand. Participating directly in our children’s preschool afforded us unique insight into their intellectual, social and emotional development and allowed us to develop close relationships with the families of their peers as members of a truly cooperative community.”

Co-op parent 2004-2011

A wonderful community of families!

“The Co-op is an amazing place! We feel that we are a part of a wonderful community of families that treasures children, and values learning through experience and play. We feel so lucky that all of our kids will have had the Co-op experience.”

Co-op parent 2006-2013

There is no better preschool in Dallas!

“The Co-op is more to me than just a preschool. It is truly a “family” where you know your children will be taught with the same loving kindness you give to them at home. I have loved having the opportunity to be a part of my child’s development and seeing her in the classroom in a way most parents aren’t able to. There is no better preschool in Dallas!”

Co-op parent 2008-2011

Parents play an integral part of their kids' experiences at this school.

“One of my favorite parts of the Co-op is that I have been able to watch my children’s social interactions. I love that parents play an integral part of their kids’ experiences at this school because that opportunity lessens as kids grow up and move on to a “traditional” school.”

Co-op parent 2005-2011

I would recommend the Co-op to any parent!

“We felt really comfortable coming into the Co-op with our 2-year-old. The director gave us a personal tour and answered all of our questions. The schedule is unique - consecutive days of programming. This consistency really helps the kids adjust to a school experience. We’ve had three fabulous years here now. I would recommend the Co-op to any parent. It is a unique gift to be able to participate directly in your child’s first educational experience.”

Co-op parent since 2008

They entered public school fully ready to take on the world!

“I was a Co-op parent of 3 children for a cumulative 15 years! The co-op experience nurtured their emotional, social and creative growth and I became a better parent because of our years there. They were allowed to be kids yet at the same time the “curriculum” was thoughtful, thorough and engaging. They entered public school fully ready to take on the world.”

Co-op parent 1996-2010

Great transition year!
<p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">&ldquo;The Fours &amp; Fives class was a great success for my son. A year ago, we were really struggling with the question of whether or not to send him to kindergarten. We knew he would be bored repeating a PK4 curriculum, but we also knew he needed some extra time to mature. Kathy&rsquo;s class was amazing. His transition year with her allowed our son to explore new subjects and materials while focusing on his social and emotional growth. Now we know he is completely ready for kindergarten.&rdquo;</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Co-op parent 2007-2010</span></span></p>
