What is a Co-op?
term “cooperative nursery school” describes a school where
efforts are crucial to the school’s day-to-day running and to its
overall existence. Parents work closely with the teachers and the children
and they are actively involved with many aspects of the school. We appeal
to parents who are interested in helping create and foster a quality
nursery school environment, and who are interested in becoming more involved
with their children’s lives and education. Everyone’s efforts,
and everyone’s willingness to give what they can (time, insights
and expertise) are vital to the operation and success of our school.
The Co-op brings together many wonderful people. We offer the opportunity
for close parent-child interaction, parental education in areas related
to experiences and issues in the preschool years, and the opportunity
to be involved in maintaining and caring for the school.
What is the ratio of children
to teachers and adults?
Each class consists of 17 kids, 2 teachers and 3 parents.
