Ashland Community Preschool is a Montessori-based, cooperative preschool. We use the Montessori method to provide a stimulating and enjoyable experience for 33-month-olds to five-year-olds.

We are a volunteer, cooperative preschool. By enrolling your child, you become a working partner and member of the Ashland Community Preschool. As a co-op member, you have the chance to witness your child’s preschool memories and development with your own eyes. We are licensed with the Commonwealth of Virginia and welcome children of any race, religion, nationality and ethnic origin.

There are two classes. One class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 – 1:00 p.m. In line with the Montessori method, it is mixed ages and any child from 33 months to 5 years old may be in this class.

The second class meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 – 1:00 p.m. Children over the age of 45 months are welcomed into this class. There is an optional kindergarten preparatory program from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. for those children in the class who will be starting Kindergarten the following year.

Class sizes are limited to 16 students in the two-day class and 18 students in the three-day class. With 3 adults in the classroom, ratios are kept low.
