Aloha, welcome to KOP

Kilauea Ohana Playschool (KOP) is a part-time cooperative preschool that has been serving Honolulu and East Oahu since 1968. It strives to create community and provide an introduction to school in a safe, comfortable, nurturing environment.


The major emphasis for children is social development and learning through play with academic concepts embedded in activities throughout the day.


All parents volunteer in the classroom once a month on average and all positions in the cooperative, with the exception of one paid teacher, are filled by parents, creating a supportive community for both parents and children.
