ABOUT CLP

Central Lutheran Preschool is a bright happy cooperative preschool program located in Yakima. We aim to educate both the our students and their families. CLP has two programs for Yakima Valley families. Our Toddler Class for ages 18m-3yrs provides an exciting and active setting for our youngest students to explore with their caregivers. Our preschool program for ages 3 years to 5 years uses play-based learning  with a focus on science and process-art to provided a well-rounded preschool experience.

 

WHAT IS A COOPERATIVE PRESCHOOL?

Central Lutheran Preschool (CLP) is a non-profit school organized by parents, teachers and a Program Coordinator. It is run by an Executive Board consisting of parents. In addition to providing a developmentally-appropriate and stimulating environment for children, the program is also intended to support caregivers in their role as parents and teachers of their children. The entire administration and maintenance of the school, including such responsibilities as hiring teachers, making classroom purchases, recruiting new students, paying bills, fundraising, and cleaning and repairing facilities and equipment, are all done by parents and the teachers.

Parent play a large role in the functioning of CLP. 2 or 3 times per month, parents or other caregivers of students work in the preschool classroom as classroom helpers. Parent sign up for  what helper role they would like, (art table, building center, dramatic play) and engage and play with students during their time in the classroom. It is a wonderful way to be involved in your child education.

- Encourages self-esteem and self-confidence

- Above average adult to child ratio in classroom

- Children play and learn to respect others
