Tinton Falls Cooperative Preschool is a non-profit, non-denominational preschool offering School Year and Summer Camp programs tailored to the interests and learning styles of the children enrolled. We believe that a happy experience outside the home coupled with exposure to a wide range of activities instills a lifelong desire for learning and exploration.

All teachers have taught young children for an average of 15+ years. Becky Martin, Director, focused on Early Childhood Education throughout her 30+ year teaching career.  Along with our teachers, each class has an assistant teacher and/or a co-oping family member, having a maximum adult/student ratio of 1:5 for our 2 1/2 – 3-Year-Old Class, 1:6 for our 3–4-Year-Old Class, and 1:7 for our Pre-K Class.

We promise a nurturing and supportive environment with encouraged family involvement. Our programs focus on hands-on learning with an emphasis on building social skills and responsibility.

A child’s first experience in preschool can be a welcome time in your child’s life.

Monday/Tuesdays/Thursday/Friday from 9 am to 12 pm

While preparing for the beginning of their Elementary School years, we incorporate each child’s different interests and learning styles by working in small groups and encouraging children to work and create on their own. Reading and math skills are woven throughout each day in a developmentally appropriate learning style that allows for individual growth according to each child’s interests and abilities. Our play-based curriculum is carefully crafted to offer learning opportunities throughout the morning.

A great class to add to our 4 day a week class or to add to your child’s Home-Schooling schedule.
