Kekere Co-op is located on the ancestral land of the Anishinaabe people, commonly known as Ypsilanti, Michigan. Our homeschool cooperative is designed for families with children ages three years old through 13 years old. We offer care Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Kekere is inspired by the Freedom Schools of the Civil Rights Movement, the wisdom and resilience of our ancestors and love for our grandchildren’s grandchildren. Our community is specifically designed to affirm families which include Black children, Indigenous children, all children of the global majority and 2SLGBTQIA+ folks. All families who are committed to liberation and love are welcome in our community. 

What kind of curriculum do you use?
We believe in learning that is self-directed and community-oriented and support children and families in delving deeply into their curiosities and passions. The world is our curriculum. We know, through research and lived experience, that play is the most essential work of the child. Our facilitators join young people in their playful work as co-learners and documentarians.
