About Red Barn Preschool

About us

Established in 1977, Red Barn Pre-School is a non-profit, non-sectarian, state-certified, private cooperative pre-school. Governed by a board of parents, the school offers families an opportunity to be involved in their child’s first educational experience. Red Barn is a member of the Parent-Child Preschools Organization, a multi-state association of cooperative preschools. 


Why A Cooperative?

The greatest strength of a cooperative school is the benefit the child receives from their parents involvement in their education. Secondary benefits are the opportunities provided for the parents to learn and grow.

Is There A Curriculum?

Red Barn offers extensive curriculum materials and experiences. Art media of all kinds, role playing, music, creative movement, stories, table top toys, building blocks, outside large motor development and field trips provide a large variety of learning important to child development. 


Teachers at Red Barn are experienced, caring and compassionate.  And most of all they LOVE their job! Our goal is to hire teachers with a degree in Early Childhood Education or working towards one.
