About us:

Our Mission:

The Barbara M. Tufts Cooperative Preschool is an ecumenial venture of the East Greenwich faith communities. It was established to provide a developmentally appropriate nursery school experience with openness to the uniqueness of all children, without regard to gender, family origins, economic sitation or religious affiliation.

​We are a 501(c)(3) cooperative preschool providing opportunities for children to make choices, solve problems and feel good about themselves and their individuality.

We offer a morning or afternoon program for three and four year-old children meeting two to five days a week. We offer an afternoon pre-Kindergarten program for four days a week (Mon-Thurs).​

​The East Greenwich United Methodist Church provides the space for the school at no cost, so that the Cooperative can offer a sliding fee scale and no child is ever denied access for financial reasons.​


Our classrooms are filled with materials, experiences and people who nurture and stimulate curiosity, cognitive growth, emotional well-being, awareness of achievement, fine and gross motor development, a sense of self-esteem, socialization skills and self-care.

Parents are the backbone of our school and a child’s most important teacher; most parents volunteer in their child’s classroom once per month, resulting in an exceptional ratio of one adult per three children.

A day in the Barbara M. Tufts Cooperative finds children exploring a carefully planned environment, choosing activities that interest them and moving freely from one experience to the next one. A dependable daily routine helps children feel secure as they rotate through four activity centers:

The Block Room: Opportunities are provided for children to develop hand-eye coordination, strength, control, and object manipulation.
The Reading Room: Children increase their strength, balance, muscle control and coordination through play.
The Work Room:Here you will find children developing skills in listening and expressing their thoughts and ideas.
