“Fairmount Coop has been an amazing school for my children to learn and grow.  The instruction is phenomenal, some of the most gifted teachers I've ever seen.  They deeply care about the kids, and do a terrific job developing their brains in a crucial period.  The community is friendly and pleasant, and as a coop each parent takes responsibility for their children's education, which means every student then has the help of 100 parents and their teachers.  The play areas are safe and well thought out, which is important for a school that emphasizes learning through play.  My third child currently attends, and I couldn't be happier with their experiences.”

“Being part of a co-op has allowed us to have an active role in the education of our children at a vital time in their social and intellectual development. We have gotten to know all the teachers over the past several years, and could not be more impressed with the nurturing environment they create. The emphasis on learning through play is a framework we really value, and the supportive community at FCP has been wonderful for our family.”

Where Children Learn Through Play!

Fairmount Co-Op will nurture, educate, and enrich children through the philosophy of learning through play. FCP will support a classroom atmosphere of mutual respect, positive self-awareness, and learning at each child's individual pace.

“We love Fairmount Coop's sense of community.  We are all working to find the best fit and best learning style for each child.  Diversity is welcome, and each child is appreciated for his/her individual abilities.”

-Ann L.

“Our family’s time at Fairmount Coop Preschool has been nothing short of amazing. The teachers are all passionate and nurturing, and committed to play-based learning. Our oldest daughter started kindergarten this year fully prepared, both academically and socially. We also have a three year old son on his way to do doing the same. Co-op preschools are a rarity anymore, and we feel so lucky to be part of such a warm and generous community. We cannot recommend FCP enough!”

“Fairmount Cooperative Preschool has been such a blessing to our family! When we started at the preschool we were new to Cleveland Heights, and I can honestly say that much of the community we’ve built is a result of the warm and welcoming teachers and families at FCP! As an education consultant, I value the relationships teachers foster with students and caregivers, as well as the play-based curriculum. I can’t say enough good things about FCP!”
