Early Childhood Education
Mission Statement

We seek to provide a neighborhood, affordable, inclusive cooperative preschool, where the spirit of every child is appreciated and nurtured.

The Big Backyard was founded in 1952 as a cooperative preschool. Located in Mount Airy, our school offers children a place to play and explore at their own pace in an environment that is just their size.

Under the guidance of the school’s director, the Big Backyard fosters the emotional, social, and intellectual growth of children by making each child feel safe, respected and loved. We do so by welcoming diversity, inviting self-expression and demonstrating through words and action that we care for each other.
