Keeping Costs Down, Education Quality High, And School Fun!

As a Playschool Co-operative, we must be dedicated parents working together to give our children the best experience and learning environment we are able to create.

The following is a list of ways we work as a co-op to keep the Playschool functioning at a lower cost than other preschools:

​Group Meetings

A member of each family is required to attend an Orientation meeting in September.
Three additional mandatory group meetings will be scheduled to discuss activities, methods, problems, and programs that will interest parents. Unexcused absences at these meetings will result in a monetary fine.


Fundraising is vital for Playschool to maintain minimal tuition and to cover annual operating expenses.
Parent commitments may include selling items, volunteering time, and making minimal monetary contributions.

Parent Aides

Each family is required to work in the classroom as an aide a minimum of 16 days per child (and according to enrollment numbers) in the preschool and pre-kindergarten classes.  Families having trouble meeting this commitment can take part in our Tuition Swap Program.  Please contact us for details.

Parents are required to function as classroom aides and to fulfill snack requirements.
If class aides are not present, the class will be cancelled.
Tot class parents will attend each class with their child.

Committee Members

A member of each family will be responsible for participating on a committee throughout the school year.
