Parents are Key to a Successful Co-op!
A co-op nursery school relies on parent involvement in the classroom every day. This is not intended to be a chore, but a way for you – the parent – to be involved in your child’s life in a special way. And, it’s not all work! Most parents and children form lasting friendships that carry on to elementary school and beyond.
As a part of membership, parents are expected to co-op (or volunteer). Every effort is put into accommodating your busy schedule.
By serving in administrative positions, participating in daily classroom activities and volunteering for school fundraisers, parents have the unique opportunity to observe their child's daily interactions, recognize their accomplishments and develop a relationship with the teacher and friends.
During orientation, parents are given a tour of the classroom and an overview of co-oping duties and responsibilities from which to choose.
The cooperative nursery school experience lays a wonderful foundation for both parent and child. We encourage everyone to consider this option for your child's experience in formal education. It's an experience you both can share – together.
