Wilde Lake Children’s Nursery is a co-operative preschool, established in 1968, offering programs for 2, 3, and 4 year olds. At WLCN, parents play an active role in the school by helping out both in and out of the classroom. We believe that children learn best through play, and at their own pace. Each program has been tailored to meet the developmental goals for each age, and is also flexible enough to meet the unique needs of your child. We are proud to have a staff that is well educated, experienced and dedicated, who relate well with both children and the co-op parents.
Our co-op parents are a welcome and necessary part of the daily program. Your child will be thrilled to be the “co-op friend” and to help you with the snacks and cleanup. Even if you are not co-oping that day, you are always welcome to drop in and see what the children are doing.
According to the WLCN parents, one helpful feature of our school is that the children are not required to be toilet trained. Your child can proceed at his or her own natural pace with help and encouragement at home and at school. Another benefit of the school is that infants under the age of six months can accompany their parent to school co-op days. Parents with children over the age of six months are frequently able to swap babysitting with another parent.
As Columbia, Maryland’s first co-operative preschool, WLCN offers a strong feeling of community and family support. The spirit of cohesiveness and cooperation among the families at WLCN is something very special.
WLCN is a member of the Howard County Co-Op Council.
