Profile: Glenbrook Cooperative Nursery School is a supportive, nurturing preschool for 2-, 3-, and 4-year-olds. Our programs offer the perfect opportunity to play a part in your child’s first school experience, and our flexible co-op options are designed to fit into many families’ schedules.

Our students learn and grow through meaningful, age-appropriate play within a structured environment. Our 4-year-old program provides additional structure to help prepare children for kindergarten, with the option to enroll in our enriching lunch bunch program two days a week.

As a co-op, parents play an active role within the school, primarily acting as the teachers’ assistants in the classroom. This close relationship between teachers, parents, and children builds a sense of community and togetherness.

Glenbrook is located at the intersection of Democracy Boulevard and Fernwood Road, inside the Bethesda United Church of Christ. (Glenbrook is not church affiliated.) Through the efforts of dedicated parents and staff, Glenbrook has been part of the community fabric of Bethesda since 1942.
