Live and Learn with Your Preschooler

In a Cooperative Preschool, parents join the teacher in providing a positive learning environment for children ages 3-5.  Children attend preschool for two-and-a-half hour sessions, two or three days per week (depending on the class), with parents taking turns assisting the teacher.  Class activities are planned and parenting topics are discussed at parent meetings.
