We are a parent co-operative, non-sectarian, non-profit, integrated school for children ages 27 months to 5 years old.  As a licensed preschool with a qualified ECE teacher, we provide opportunities for healthy, physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth.

Stoney Creek Cooperative Preschool was founded in 1964 and has been in the same location ever since.  The school has provided thousands of children in the community with a caring and supportive start to their education. By working side by side with our teaching staff you gain the opportunity to learn alongside your child while you create memories together.

We are located in the basement of the Stoney Creek Baptist Church, although we are not directly affiliated with the Church itself.


Role Play

Program Statement

At the Stoney Creek Cooperative Preschool we recognize children are competent, capable, curious, and rich in potential. Our educators are your children’s play partners and we understand that “play based learning” is the way that children naturally learn best. Stoney Creek Cooperative Preschool is devoted to assisting children’s growth, learning, health and security through responsible and compassionate Early Childhood Educators. Stoney Creek Cooperative Preschool ensures high quality experiences that lead to positive outcomes for children in relation to learning, development, health and well- being. Stoney Creek Cooperative Preschool encourages children to interact and communicate in a constructive way and support their capability to self-regulate by providing child initiated and adult-supported experiences.
