Littleton's My School Cooperative Preschool
My School will be closing at the end of the current 2012-13 school year.
After 39 years of providing community-based, play-oriented early childhood education, My School will be closing its doors at the end of the current school year. Times have changed and many families are no longer able to commit to a parent cooperative preschool, for many work schedules demand more hours than we can provide. Enrollment has been decreasing for many years and we are no longer financially able to continue operating the school.
Please see the attached file at the bottom of this page for details on the closing, which also includes other local area preschool options.
Auction - March 16th 2013, 7pm at Westford VFW
We are committed to continuing to provide warm, caring, nurturing education to our students until we close our doors in June. In order to sustain quality education through the end of the school year, we will be holding one final My School Auction on Saturday, March 16th featuring the music of DeadBeat. We would love to see you there.

Potluck Dinner - Saturday May 18th 6:30pm
In keeping with our emphasis on community, we would like to invite all alumni to our annual Potluck Dinner on Saturday, May 18th at 6:30pm. For so many of us, My School has been so much more than a preschool, it is where we met our friends and our children's friends, it is where we developed a sense of community and learned the value of play. Enjoying an evening of wonderful company and sharing happy memories is the best way we can think of to conclude our time at My School. Please let us know if you will be able to join us.
For 40 years My School Cooperative Preschool has provided Littleton, Massachusetts and surrounding communities with high quality early childhood education, promoting learning through play while fostering lasting friendships among My School families. My School was founded in 1974 by Noni Thompson of Littleton, who felt that the town would benefit from a cooperative nursery school and a new approach to early childhood education. Noni and a group of parents had met during the previous year to start organizing the school (finding a location, publicizing to fill enrollment, writing bylaws, hiring teachers, and buying equipment.) The school opened in September of 1974 in the spacious lower level of First Church Unitarian in Littleton, where it remains to this day. My School operates on a nonprofit, nonsectarian basis and is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care.
