Why a Cooperative Preschool?

Research clearly indicates that meaningful parent involvement in school is one of the most powerful predictors of successful student achievement.  The cooperative preschool experience is truly a family experience in meeting, knowing, and trusting others in growing and learning together.

The Mercer Island Learning Lab offers a learning experience for both parents and children. By joining MILL, parents are participating in a parent education class sponsored by Bellevue College.  Parents learn child development and guidance by working with the children in class, and in this way develop a better understanding of their own children.
