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 Pre-3s Class

Teacher Christi is an actual child whisperer. She leads them effortlessly and cheerfully, never raising her voice or showing any signs of irritation. She is endlessly patient and understanding and manages to be simultaneously sweet and firm when it’s necessary. I honestly wish she could be my kids’ teacher for as long as they’re in school!

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

I have been involved as a University-Ravenna coop parent for 3 years and I recommend this preschool with 100% enthusiasm. The facility is spacious, the teachers are wonderful: encouraging, creative, and knowledgeable, and the community of families is supportive and fun.
