Our Cooperative Community School News
Have you visited PCPI's Facebook page yet?
Come see us here - a vibrant cooperative preschool community, with news from schools around the U.S. and Canada. 
One thing that really caught our eye was this terrific video from PCPI Members - Maple Street School in Brooklyn, NY. We're proud of them, this YouTube video is for their 'Little Friends Campaign", raising scholarship funds and great awareness, and featuring their preschool alumnae. They've also got a great website with resources that may inspire a re-fresh of your school's site.
