Weekday Cooperative Preschool is a cooperative program that has been educating children for over 60 years. It is a multicultural school, welcoming the families and children of all backgrounds in South Orange, Maplewood, West Orange, Irvington and other surrounding towns. Weekday offers classes for 2 ½, 3 and 4 year old children, from 9:00am to 12 noon. Tuition ranges from $275 to $380 per month. The academic curriculum is woven into the fabric of the everyday schedule, providing opportunities for social interaction and discovery of new things through a hands-on approach. The teachers strive to awaken each child’s curiosities and establish attitudes and concepts that will form a foundation for their future education.

Weekday Cooperative Preschool is a special place where weaknesses become strengths, and confidence builds in our respectful, exploratory classrooms.


  • We bring many experiences to each child so they grow and develop at his/her own pace.
  • We use Thursdays as our “special days” for providing multi-age activities and events.
  • We bring what is taught in the classroom to the real world by utilizing South Orange and its many opportunities.
  • We invite specialists to enrich the classroom with music, nature, and unique “Show and Tells”.

Weekday is located at the beginning of the Irvington Avenue District, where South Orange Ave and Irvington Ave split. Come visit us soon! Call 973.762.7879 or email director.weekdayso@gmail.com.
