Our school is the children’s school

This means that the needs of children come first.

The focus at the Anchorage Cooperative Preschool, aka ACP, is a child-centered philosophy that incorporates family and community lifestyles and ways of being. Specific activities emerge from the children’s interests and families’ ideas.

Positive social and emotional interactions are the main focus while academic endeavors are used to enhance the overall experience.

At ACP Families and Children practice 

  • play and exploration by doing

  • being a friend

  • taking turns

  • sharing with others

  • listening to others

  • helping others

  • standing up for themselves (to be heard and respected)

  • negotiating in peaceful ways

  • increasing attention spans

  • valuing themselves as individuals and group members

  • being willing to make mistakes and learn from them

  • being excited about discovery and learning

  • trying new things

  • having fun
