Sherman Oaks Cooperative Preschool

The Sherman Oaks Cooperative Preschool provides a developmentally appropriate program, individualized to each child’s needs. Our program promotes social, emotional, language, intellectual and physical development within an early childhood environment.

People like us...

SOCP is a one of a kind preschool. There are plenty of (free) play opportunities or kids. Teacher Tammy is anamazing Teacher who builds a lasting relationship with each child. My oldest who graduated last year still talks about “TT” all the time and frequently mentions how much she learned in preschool.
I have often described this school as magical, and I truly believe it is!

There is so much love, kindness and support from all the families that have been involved and it attracts a great crowd of people. I highly recommend this school if you’re looking to be involved in your child’s first educational experience.
