Profile: At Aspen Hill Cooperative Nursery School, caregivers and teachers work together in a warm and friendly atmosphere to raise each child’s educational and personal abilities through positive reinforcement, rewarding learning activities, and the friendly interaction of peers. As a consequence, pupils learn cooperation, creativity, and caring for others. In the true spirit of a cooperative, we, the participating families, give of ourselves and of our time so that our school will be what we want it to be for our children.

Our school is a non-profit organization that is parent-owned and operated and professionally staffed. We are licensed by the Maryland Department of Human Resources and Childcare Administration.

We also offer a Parent Helper Program for our members. It is a nursery designed to provide babysitting for the younger, non-enrolled children of co-oping parents while the parents are assisting in the classroom.
