Founded in 1940, the C-W Parent Co-op is Clark County’s oldest continuously-operating preschool. Our history, cooperative philosophy, and high teaching standards combine to make the Co-op one of the most sought-after early childhood educational experiences in the area.


The Camas-Washougal Parent Co-op is a cooperative preschool located in Camas, Washington. The preschool is run by an Executive Board and by a Parent Board, which is made up by the parents of our enrolled students. All administrative and maintenance tasks are completed by the Parent and Executive Boards. The teachers are the only paid employees, which allows for the tuition and registration fees to remain low while maintaining the highest teaching standards.

Attending the C-W Parent Co-Op is a privilege made possible by the efforts and dedication of the parents and families of our students. The hard work of our fantastic educators and the parts played by each family in the school come together to maintain our excellent and long standing reputation within the community.

Our Families Say It Best

¨It has been a great time being with my child in the classroom getting to know the kids and the families in the community. I not only feel connected to my child’s education but also the community as a whole!¨
¨We have had a great experience. We feel confident in the level of teaching at the school and look forward to a successful 1st year of elementary school thanks to the curriculum and outstanding socialization.¨
¨It’s hard to put into words but when I attended my first parent open house I just got ´that feeling.´ After hearing the board and teachers speak I just knew it was the place for my kids.¨
