About the School

A unique and caring environment that encourages child-driven experiences, growth and a love of learning and community.

History Sharon residents, Susan Markowitz and Pearl Falk founded The Sharon Cooperative School in 1976 as a place where parents could create a nurturing community of mutual learning not only for their preschool children but for themselves as well.

Community This community of shared vision has transcended the preschool years and follows families throughout the course of their lives. Parents became a support group for each other linked by their friendship, mutual respect, their children. The school now welcomes about 60 children from many different communities in four full day classrooms.

The Nature School In September 2018, we opened The Cooperative Nature School at The Trustees Moose Hill Farm in Sharon. The 30 families, 6 educators and 1 naturalist create amazing series experiences and learning as children move towards kindergarten readiness.

NAEYC Since 2004, The Sharon Cooperative School, Inc. has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children. “NAEYC Accreditation lets families in our community know that children in our school are getting the best care and early learning experiences.”
