Campbell Parents’ Participation Preschool (CPPP) is a parent participation (or co-op) preschool with a 60-year history of providing a place for children to learn and grow while receiving individualized attention from parents and teachers. We offer each child time for free creative play, time to explore open ended and planned activities to the extend of their interest, and time to relate to other children and adults.
The Campbell Parents Participation Preschool philosophy is based primarily on the Developmental Theory of Early Childhood education. We believe that each child is unique and will develop at their own rate, given sufficient and age-appropriate stumuli and a safe nuturing environment. Toward this end, we offer each child time for free creative play, time to explore open ended and planned activities to the extent of their interest and time to relate to other children and adults. We hope to provide experiences that will help to develop healthy and happy children.
It has been such a wonderful experience for them and for me. The school attracts such a great community. My children love the play-based curriculum and have loved their teachers. There's music, cooking, and science. As well as great field trips to the fire station, farm tours etc.
My daughter started the class very attached to me and ending it an independent child with fully formed relationships with other parents and her teacher. It has been great to watch her be able to lead her own learning through play and figure things out for herself. She looks forward to it every day.
