Welcome to Co-op!

Welcome to The Fayette Cooperating Preschool (commonly known as “Co-op”). Located in beautiful Lexington, KY, Co-op is a non-profit, non-discriminatory, independent educational institution established in 1951, and our preschool classes are licensed by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Not only do we offer an exceptional first-school experience for young children, but also a unique program that nurtures parents as well. The foundation of our program is direct parent involvement, and we are the oldest parent-teacher cooperative school in Central Kentucky. Learn more ›


Our Philosophy

We believe that a child’s preschool experience should be one in which the foundations are laid for a lifetime of learning through appropriate early childhood educational experiences. Learn more ›
