The purpose of the preschool is to assist families in the tasks of parenthood and to improve parenting skills in an environment that fosters cooperation, friendship and community involvement. The mission is to provide:
- Parent education through active participation in the care and guidance of children, and in discussion groups under the direction of people trained in preschool education
- Opportunity for preschool children to cooperate with each other, and to play with other children in an environment that provides a sense of security and happiness
- A play-based, child-centered preschool experience under the guidance of a trained teacher-director and the assistance of parents, which will emotionally and socially prepare the child for kindergarten.
If you want to learn more about the importance of parent involvement in the education of young children, we invite you to visit our school and talk with our director. This article titled, "But Why a Co-op?" is also particularly helpful in gaining an understanding of the benefits of parent participation preschools both to you, and to your child.
