What Parents Say About Us

The Waterloo Co-operative Preschool prepared Sammy for all day every day JK. I don’t think she would have settled in with such ease if it wasn’t for her fantastic preschool experience.
— Sammy's mom
We love the program! I enjoy being in the classroom and watching my son interact with others. I can’t wait to get little sister started next year!
— Eric's parents
My daughter absolutely loved every day of the toddler program. She was so excited to see her teachers and classmates. She comes home singing new songs, proudly displaying her artworks and discussing with anticipation the next day she will go to school!
— Hannah's mom

Our son attended the preschool program at Waterloo Co-operative as a three year old and had an excellent experience there. As an introverted child who gets anxious in new social settings and around large groups of children, we thought it would be better to give him another year to mature before introducing him to a classroom with 20+ kids. We are so glad we made the decision to keep him at Waterloo Co-operative Preschool for another year in the preparing for Kindergarten program.
— Seth's mom
My daughter was already comfortable with Waterloo Co-operative Preschool because her older brother went there, but the first day when I took her to class, she could barely believe that it was finally her turn. I enjoy seeing her have so much fun in the classroom and seeing her little personality develop. The preschool is a truly special place.
— Sarah's mom
Even before he was enrolled, our son Carter couldn’t wait to get in the door of the preschool. He saw how much fun his big sister was having there and just wanted to be a part of it. We decided to enrol him in the toddler program and he has loved every minute of it. He wakes up every day of the week and asks if it’s his “preschool day.” The only problem is having to see his pouting face on the days where it is not! Carter’s eagerness and enthusiasm is the best and most important indication of what a fantastic program this preschool has.
