All Austin Cooperative Nursery School



All Austin Cooperative Nursery School is a part-time preschool program created and supported by a community of parents, teachers, and children, working together to provide high-quality experiential learning for our children in a secular environment.

Our non-profit school is a true cooperative, run by a board made up of parents, the director, the teachers, and members of the Austin community. Each family is responsible for a support job, and parents take turns assisting the teacher in the classroom. While our children are learning by playing together, we parents are learning too, by sharing information and by following the supportive guidance of our teachers.

A group of progressive parents established the All Austin Cooperative in 1953 as one of the first interracial and intercultural schools in the state. We are proud to continue this tradition, drawing together families from many different backgrounds and from all over the city of Austin.
