Children & Company is a private non-profit cooperative preschool located in Howard County in the Village of Long Reach of Columbia, Maryland. We believe that children's play is their work and we have created an environment in which children are free to explore their own interests while becoming part of the school community.
Children & Company Preschool, founded in 1971, offers programs for 2-, 3- and 4-year-olds. Our educational approach centers on the premise that “children’s play is their work." We believe that children learn more effectively when their activities are self-chosen, self-directed, and connected to their own life experiences. At Children and Company, each child is able to make choices and follow his or her own interests. The atmosphere of free exploration allows each child to develop his or her creative potential.
