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.
Additional mandatory group meetings may be scheduled as needed 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. Families are required to purchase (or sell) at least 2 tickets to our annual fundraising auction.  

Classroom Commitment

Each family is required to provide snacks and paper serving products for their child’s class up to 8 times per year, according to class enrollment.

Tot parents are required to attend each class with their child.

Aide day sign ups are available for Preschool and PreK classes. Parents signing up for an aide day will be expected to come to school 15 minutes early, will have specific duties during class, and will need to stay 15 minutes after class to help clean up. While aides are welcome and appreciated, they are not required for classes to function. Classes will not be canceled due to no aide.

Parent Jobs

A member of each family will be required to sign up for a Parent Job for the year. Parent jobs include everything from laundry helper to committees such as Springfest Committee or Auction Committee. You can choose to be a board member, craft helper, zookeeper, librarian, equipment manager…there is something for everyone! Parents who do not choose a job at Orientation will have a job assigned to them.

Roseburg Playschool Co-Op is a “nut-free” school due to children’s allergies. Please keep this in mind when you are preparing and bringing HEALTHY snacks.

Each class will have a chart of approved snacks to select from, based on allergies, etc. Birthday and holiday treats can be pre-approved by your teacher.
