North Hill Cooperative Preschool Closure

After 55 years of being a part of this incredible Fife/Milton/Edgewood community, it is with heavy hearts that the board members of North Hill Co-Op Preschool must announce that as of February 4th, 2021, our doors are officially and permanently closed.


Due to some unforeseen circumstances, the facility that we held our preschool in also had to make the tough decision to close and move this year. This ultimately left us without a place to provide services. Not having a facility, along with lower enrollment over the last few years, COVID was also hindering our ability to provide a full educational experience for the students. All of our classroom materials, outdoor playground equipment and other belongings have been donated to another preschool within the Bates Co-Op program, so other children will get the chance to enjoy them!


Thank you to the vendors that have donated to our auctions and other fundraisers over the years. Thank you to the amazing community members who have supported us by participating in our fundraisers year after year. Thank you to every single one of the board members who have given their time (and sometimes sanity) year-round for supporting our school and helping to keep it running smoothly throughout the years.

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to each of our previous teachers, former students and all of the countless incredible parents and family members who have been a part of our story and become a part of our NHCP family. Whether you were here for a month, or years, we have loved having every single one of you be a part of our school’s history. There have undoubtedly been lifelong friendships made through NHCP, and we will forever be grateful.


A special thank you to our current Bates Rep, Cindy Morris, for always being our guiding light, for pouring her heart and soul into our school. Cindy is not only our representative, but she was also a former teacher for NHCP for many years, so this is especially hard for her and we cannot thank her enough. For the friendship, the laughs, and abundance of support she has provided over the years.


Cindy: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!


It has been a pleasure serving the greater FME area. Thank you for being a part of the North Hill Co-op Preschool family.
