CELEBRATING 20 YEARS! 1992-2012

We are currently enrolling for the 2012/2013 school year! Contact us via email or give us a call to request a registration packet. It's going to be a great year!

Midland Cooperative Preschool is a Bates affiliated play-based preschool for children ages 1-3. Parents and children attend each class together giving you time to play and bond with your child. There is also a fantastic, parent education component built right into the 2-hour schedule. We are the only preschool in the area using this model and have been doing so for 20 years! We are supported by 2 parent educators, 2 preschool teachers, and a Bates Home and Family Life instructor. Our bright and cheerful preschool is located in the Midland area, and because of our proximity to Highway 512 we have served families from Puyallup, Graham, Tacoma, Bonney Lake and Parkland. Visitors are welcome to observe a class at any time during the school year!
