Parents and Children Learning Together


Family Preschool is a cooperative, play-based preschool that has served the Triangle  community for 50 years. With our cooperative preschool model parents experience their child’s early years of development through direct engagement in the classroom. Our five experienced teachers provide a nurturing environment for children to learn, play, and grow alongside their parents and loved ones in a half-day setting.

Children learn best through creative interaction with the world around them. Our play-based/Project Approach curriculum embraces this.

“Choosing Family Preschool is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents. Our son loves FPS because of his friends, amazing teachers and the best playground in town. We love it because our son is thriving and the parent run co-op model allows us to really get to know the teachers and families, and trust that our son is in the best hands. Helping in the classroom and seeing our son play and interact with his friends is the best part of my month and something I will miss tremendously when our time at family preschool is done.”
