About Us

Nestled in the basement of the historic Hanover Arts & Activities Center, Ashland Community Preschool is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit cooperative school run by a parent board. As part of the cooperative, member parents have the chance to witness their child’s development and create those first educational memories together with their children. As partners in our operations, each of our families plays an important role in creating a successful school. By creating a welcoming environment for both curious children and engaged parents, Ashland Community Preschool is able to create a unique community that is the one of the “Center of the Universe’s” best kept secrets.

We are licensed with the Commonwealth of Virginia and welcome children of any race, religion, nationality or ethnic origin.

Using the Montessori Method, Ashland Community Preschool provides a stimulating and educationally enjoyable preschool experience for three- to five-year-olds.
