Founded in 2005, Gale River Cooperative Preschool is a non-profit, non-sectarian, cooperative preschool for children aged 3 to 5.  We value free play in nature and meeting children where they are. The school is fully licensed by the New Hampshire Department of Early Education.


The school is a parent/guardian run cooperative dedicated to fostering exploration, play, and the lifelong love of learning.  Under the guidance and in partnership with our professional teachers, the parents/guardians form a community that encourages caring for all of the children and families, a sharing of ideas, skills, concerns, and values.


The school is located at Copper Cannon Camp in Bethlehem, NH.  Facilities include a spacious indoor play area with a wide variety of materials, an outdoor classroom in the woods, and an expansive forest location for exploration and play.
