A tremendous amount of support for fellow members is shown throughout the cooperative preschool, and friendships among parent and children abound.
The sense of community and commitment to education on the part of parents is strengthened, and has been shown to reap lifetime rewards.
Children learn that school is a fun experience and their love of school enhances their outlook.
By fostering continued parental involvement, the quality of education is enhanced far beyond the preschool years. Many families have a deep loyalty to the preschool as seen in parents participating for four, six and even ten years in the program (based on how many children they have).
Children leave the co-op ready to tackle the challenges of kindergarten, and parents retain parenting skills and techniques which will serve them long after their preschooler has graduated.
Many parents become active participants of PTA.
