Healthy Schools Act

Modesto Parent Participation Preschool, established in 1970, is founded on the principle that the best education results from an active partnership among parents, teachers, and children. Our philosophy embraces the idea that our children learn best through play,  and we provide a rich learning and playing environment where parents and children experience child development together.

MPPP is a unique kind of preschool. It is governed by a Board of Directors made up of elected participation parents and teachers. All issues are goverened by the Board of Directors. Parents will share new and exciting experiences with their child and other children. There will be opportunites to learn new ways of handling children from professional staff members and other parents. There will be a chance to watch your child in a new perspective as a member of the group. Because the family is a partner in the preschool experience, family ties are strengthened. With the shared experiences and responsibilites between the families and the school, the program can provide quality and remain cost effective.

 As a cooperative preschool, we keep our costs low and our adult-child ratio high by having parents participate in the classroom regularly. Parents also make up our 10-member Board of Directors and take on other roles from gardener to shopper to ensure the success of our school. 

Our T/TH teacher, 2 year old teacher and director has been teaching preschool for over 15 years. Teacher Angela received her BA from CSU Monterey Bay, as well as attending community colleges for addtional child development courses. Before joining MPPP as a staff member her own children attended the preschool program. Teacher Angela is committed to consistenly improving our learning through play philosophy.

Teacher Laura teaches our MWF class with a rich history of teaching preschool for 17 years.  Teacher Laura was born and raised here in Modesto she attended MJC for child development. She has a deep connection with our community, often running into previous students throughout town.
