At a cooperative preschool, parents are an integral part of the classroom experience. Both parents and children reap the benefits of parental involvement in school. By participating in the classroom, parents can watch their child enjoy their early school experiences while also contributing to a higher adult-to-child ratio. Parents also have the opportunity to shape the school by serving on the Board or on various committees. Social events for parents and families make the preschool a true community and foster life-long friendships.
