OUR STORY

Stratford Cygnets Cooperative Preschool began back in 1960 in the basement of St. Johns Church in Stratford; While Cygnets has moved and evolved over the years, those founding families recognized the importance of early education as well as the advantages of parents having an active part in running the preschool our children attend. Over 50 years later, the model still holds. Parents work with the common goal to run the best possible preschool for our children with the guidance and resources of our professional Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE). The Preschool Supervisor works closely with the Preschool Administrator and the Board of Directors, and families serve on committees. Together, we make sure that each child has a successful experience, providing a friendly and supportive Cooperative experience.
