Welcome to The Fayette Cooperating Preschool (commonly known as Co-op). We are located in Lexington, Ky. Co-op is a non-profit, non-discriminatory, independent educational institution established in 1951, licensed by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.

We offer an exceptional first-school experience for young children and a unique program that nurtures parents as well. The foundation of our program is direct parent involvement and we are the only parent-teacher cooperative school in Central Kentucky.

In addition to a qualified teacher and a teacher’s aide, two or three parents assist in the classroom each day on a rotating schedule. This provides an excellent adult/child ratio in each of these programs offered— 1:3 for Two year-olds and 1:4 for Preschool.

Parents choose their classroom workdays at the beginning of each work period, and we try to accommodate each parent’s personal schedules. How often you work depends on how often your child attends, and all parents receive training before working in the classroom. Parents are also asked to volunteer with cleaning/maintenance tasks, fundraising events and various other ways throughout the school year.

Please contact Co-op at 859-276-6350 for more information, registration forms, or to schedule a visit. We strongly encourage you and your child to visit when considering enrollment.
