Welcome to the University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool. Our school is conveniently located a few blocks off of Northeast 65th Street and 35th Avenue Northeast, just across the street from Bryant Elementary.

We offer a play-based preschool education for children ranging in age from two to five years old. Class is held in the spacious, bright basement of the Ravenna Collaboratory (unaffiliated). One open floor plan classroom contains all of our learning centers — including a home center, dramatic play center, art center, library, sensory table, large muscle equipment, and more — facilitating easy movement between centers during free play time. We use the playground at Bryant Elementary School (unaffiliated) for outdoor recess.

We are now enrolling!

University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Testimonial from the 3-5s Class

Teacher Nicole is absolutely amazing. We couldn’t be happier with her. She is not only a natural with the kids, but she’s also a gifted musician. And, she started the year off by introducing a new-to-us social-emotional learning curriculum, which has really resonated with the students. So far she’s used puppets, songs, and stories to teach the kids the importance of welcoming, listening, and focusing attention. You should see them with their “attention-scopes”! I can’t wait to see what’s next, and I would really encourage anyone looking for a preschool program for their three to five year old to seriously consider joining Teacher Nicole’s class.

University-Ravenna Cooperative Preschool : Testimonial from the Pre-3s Class

We love Teacher Christi! Both of my sons were in her Pre-3s class. She is kind and patient with each child’s needs, and also so relatable with the parents.
