The Petworth Cooperative is a collaborative, community-based, and independent playgroup built on the intersections of all members’ skills and resources. Parent volunteers and a facilitator run our coop, and its goal is to cultivate a strong community and a creative, play-based learning environment for our children.
We seek to provide a loving, caring, and supportive environment where children can freely interact and learn. We encourage all aspects of a child’s development through play-based learning, which includes learning to negotiate, take turns, and make friends. We offer both structured activities and free play and encourage outdoor time.
As members of a cooperative, families contribute their unique experiences and talents to the playgroup by working in the classroom in support of our facilitator.
