COOP (Child Oriented Occupational Program) is a fun place for kids to learn! Our program is for four-year-olds, and is staffed by high school students who are under the guidance of our COOP director, Mrs. Bordenkircher (a certified teacher), and our morning and afternoon COOP coordinators (Ms.O'Connor, Mrs. Newberry and Ms. Santistevan). We are a licensed preschool. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information about our program.
Centennial High School C.O.O.P.
An Arizona State Licensed Child Care Facility
C.O.O.P. Stands for Child Oriented Occupational Program. The purpose of this program is to give "on the job training" to high school students who are interested in an occupation that involves young children. The students selected for this program have had one semester of Child Development, which included interaction with the C.O.O.P. children last year. The students will be studying day care management, curriculum development, lesson planning, discipline, health and safety, and Arizona Day Care Regulations as well as other relevant topics.
COOP is a nonprofit organization and we depend totally on tuition to pay salaries, as well as for lunches, snacks, supplies and equipment. Tuition is due by the first business day of the month. The cost of the preschool is estimated to be $27.00 per day. Your tuition is determined by the number of school days per month.
Our hours of operation are 6:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We follow the Peoria Unified School District calendar.
