Carmel Cooperative Preschool

As Carmel Cooperative grows to include a Kindergarten program, we are prepared to take our outdoor space to the next level. Our detailed plans, as seen above, include added mulched areas for safety, a sand box for sensory play, and an outdoor classroom including learning gardens and outdoor tables.Our goal is to become a Nature Explore certified classroom and to have a safe, beautiful, enriching space for our children to learn.




When Carmel Cooperative Preschool moved into our current home at the Congregation Shaarey Tefilla in Carmel, Indiana, we were thrilled that all of our classrooms doors opened up to a fenced-in, private courtyard. However, it was a big, empty yard. Since that day in 2015, we have added things as we have grown, such as mud kitchens, a dome climber and a butterfly garden, all lovingly made by our parent volunteers.
