Manito Cooperative Preschool is a place for parents and children to learn and grow together in a safe, secure, and developmentally appropriate environment. It is a place where children explore, discover, imagine, create, talk, pretend, dance, and sing.


Parents and children attend co-op together. Working with the facilitator, parents enhance the parenting experience by furthering personal growth and parenting skills while benefiting from peer-to-peer support. Their child's development is enhanced through a variety of age-appropriate learning experiences.


Manito Cooperative Preschool is affiliated with the Spokane Community College Parent Education Program. Members of Manito Co-op enroll as community college students taking a non-graded Parent Education class. The community college, in turn, helps fund the facilitator's contracts and also allows co-op to access the educational resources at the college.
