Full Participation

If you register with the full participation option, your family is committed to the items listed in the Family Commitment Section on the About page.

You will not be required to:

  • Participate in the duty day component
  • Help with seasonal school cleaning
  • Attend the monthly General Meeting. You are a full member with a vote on all items brought to membership which are discussed every second Tuesday of each month during the general meetings. Parent education runs from 6:45-8:00 p.m. and business portion of the meeting runs 8:00-9:00 p.m. You are always invited and encourage to attend the monthly meetings but it is not required.

No job, no fundraising, no duty days and no monthly meetings. You are always invited to attend either portion of the monthly meetings but it is not required. Cooperative Opt-out spaces are limited in each class.

Spring Playtime

Spring Playtime is a preschool preparation and orientation program for caregivers and tots aged 2 years – 5 years. It will give your family a chance to come and see the school and learn how we operate. Playtime is planned and delivered by Teacher Gail so it is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself and your preschooler with the preschool. It will help to make a smooth transition to preschool in the fall and offers a chance to play, chat and network with other families. ​Fee: $57 (or $10 drop-in)
