Our History

Cooline was created by Christian Sbragia, a 4th grader who was eager to create a safe space for children to have fun in his neighborhood. With a group of 5, they started, Cooline, a place where the community could gather, have fun and be safe. In 2019, the program refocused to serve children and teach them about emotions, empathy and friendships. Through 2020, the program grew from 15 to 500! Check out the rest to learn more!

Health + Wellness

Creating programs for our students that support their needs as a child.

Health and wellness take on a new meaning at Cooline. Not only do we focus on physical health and wellness, but we also dive into children's socio-emotional & mental health and well-being. Our team works tirelessly to provide programs that will offer students a holistically healthy experience. From SEL activities to art therapy, to teaching basic mental health first aid, we prepare our students to help themselves and others!

 

Safety + Security Is Our #1 Priority

Keeping our students & team safe from external harm & threats.

We have a wide range of policies and procedures that have been instituted to protect all students and staff. Unfortunately, to ensure the effectiveness of our policies and procedures, we keep all safety protocols confidential. If you have specific safety or security-related questions, please reach out to the Office of the Executive Director.
