Our Teacher


Ms. Pam Ober has taught preschool for 11 years—in NH, Boston, and Ecuador. She has been part of the Niskayuna Co-op since 2005—first as a parent and co-chair, then as a trustee, and now as the preschool teacher. She is absolutely thrilled to have come full circle! Pam has a Master’s Degree in Education and a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Early Childhood Education.

Why a CO-OP?


A cooperative nursery school is a school in which parents have the unique opportunity to participate in their child’s first experience with school. Through our “helping days,” parents enjoy the privilege of assisting the teacher in the classroom. It is tremendous fun to spend time with our children and their friends, and of course this allows us to see how they interact with others.

The immediate appeal of the co-op is the hominess of the setting. Any trepidation about enrolling a 3, 4, or 5 year old in “school” is easily dispelled by the sight of busy, happy children engaging in both individual and spontaneous groups, in a wide variety of play ventures.
