Who We Are

A Landmark Organization

Founded in 1989, Children of the World Co-op, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Co-op runs a gently-structured playgroup for families with children ages 6 months to 4 years old. We welcome new members, including those new to Baltimore and those new to the United States.

Our Mission

The mission of Children of the World Co-op is to provide a nurturing, safe and fun environment where international and American families come together in Baltimore to join in friendship, cooperation and mutual support while building a sense of community. We offer an early-education playgroup program that is affordable, promotes tolerance and celebrates cultural diversity. We also offer parenting resources and adult English language instruction.
