The Rootstown Co-Op Preschool was in business for 35 years. I started with the Co-Op in 2004 as the teacher and administrator, and then moved to the position of director. Just in my time with the Co-Op, we had the pleasure and opportunity to educate hundreds of children to prepare them for later success in Kindergarten. We worked hard as a Co-Op to build and maintain an educational program that is a success and an asset to not only our community of Rootstown, but sometimes to surrounding communities, like Waterloo, Ravenna, Field and Southeast.
With my heart extremely heavy, I had to make the decision to close the Co-Op, after 35 years in business. I feel as though our community is being let down because there will no longer be a preschool program in our area.
My time with the Preschool was amazing. I poured blood, sweat and tears into building this program from what it was and getting it to where it is, but unfortunately, the program had to close its' doors in May 2017.
Thank you to all our past families for sending your child to the Rootstown Co-Op Preschool!
