MCPC is a non-profit parent-operated cooperative preschool. Founded in 1933 we are a supportive community of 25 different families working together to facilitate our children’s development. Our focus is on creativity socialization independence cognitive growth and sensory-motor development.
Our objective is to create a safe nurturing and stimulating environment in which our children can learn to build self-esteem and to value diversity. The programs at Montclair Community Play Center are based on three key principles:
Developmental Model of Learning
Emphasizes free-choice play and hands-on experience that satisfies our childrens’ needs interests and abilities.
Daily interaction supports learning for both parent and child. To promote parental involvement we offer parent education on a variety of child-rearing topics throughout the year.
Focus on Conflict Resolution
Parents and children learn the skills they need to resolve discord at both school and home.
Our programs are also mindful of different races abilities religions gender social class and family structures. Our anti-bias orientation allows children to explore the differences and similarities between peoples in a safe and open environment. We have designed our programs to help our students develop the skills necessary to identify and counter the hurtful impact of social bias.
