History of Kiel Cooperative Preschool

Kiel Cooperative Preschool opened in 1972, through the efforts of area parents who saw a need for an
early education program in the Kiel area. The program has been in its current location, above Kiel City
Hall, since its inception. As a cooperative program, KCP (originally known as Kiel Nursery School) has
served hundreds of area children and has been administered by dozens of parents who have served
on the preschool board of directors. For over 40 years, KCP has been committed to providing an age-
appropriate, early learning experience to preschool age children and their families.
