"My son and I have been involved in the Scio Preschool Co-op this past year. We are new to the city of Scio. This course has provided us with information about the community and its resources and also helped us to branch out to make new friends. Mrs. Mendez has been a wonderful instructor and my child loves to go to school; he has really developed a strong bond with her and with the children in his class. This will help him with the transition to traditional public school, since the children will be familiar and the structured setting less daunting. I have also enjoyed the parenting course and have walked away from the experience more aware of my child's changing needs and the tools I have to help him grow. I have enjoyed this year and look forward to a fun and productive fall term."   Jennifer Willeford

"I was not sure about the seminars, but as I came I realized that it is a good way to be informed on what is going on, a chance to talk with other parents, and a good learning aspect for a wide variety of things I need to know to help my child at home."   Terry Stigen

"My experience with the Scio Preschool Co-op has been one of the best I could hope for. I had my older son in a different preschool and wish I would have had him in this one. I love that the kids and parents get to know each other before they even get to kindergarten. Nancy and JaAnna both do a great job, they are positive and encouraging with the kids. The night sessions are nice because you realize other parents are going through the same things you are. I highly recommend this class to any parent."   Mindy Wallen

"Having a co-op in our town is a wonderful and affordable opportunity. Being involved with my preschooler and the hands-on experience is priceless. We are creating beautiful memories that we will look back on and cherish. It is the perfect environment to get to know the other parents that will continue to be a parent of our children's generation as they get older."   Rhonda Schumacher
