Finding a space for your family at The Cooperative Preschool
The Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnic background of children or families in its admissions.
Reading through the website Please take time to look around. We have tried to give prospective families a lot of information about who we are, the benefits and responsibilities of our cooperative and to give families a feel for what our school is like.
Setting up a tour or observation If you have read through the website, and are interested in the school, we suggest emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a tour or observation of our program (see tour information regarding COVID-19 protocols.) If you wish to see the program when class is in session (observation), please note that this is for grown-ups only. If you would like to set up a time to see the school outside of class hours (tour), you may bring your children with you to see the classrooms. We are not currently doing in-person tours because of the pandemic - but are taking calls and can do virtual tours. We may start weekend tours in a few weeks with careful protocols - masks and distancing)
Getting on the wait list When you have decided that the school is a good fit for your family, you may fill out the Wait List Form and pay the Wait List Fee of $25 ($26.32 with processing fee). During open enrollment the registrar or director will call names on the wait list to inform them of openings in the class they are interested in. Children remain on the Wait List until they are too old for the school.
Admission Calendar Open Enrollment begins in February and ends when classes are full. We will spaces as they become available.
Scholarships The Cooperative Preschool budgets and raises funds for scholarships each year. All scholarships are need based. Families may ask for a scholarship application upon notification that a space is available for their child. Most scholarships are partial scholarships and works hard to make sure that finances are not a reason a family can't attend the school. The Cooperative Preschool does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnic background of children or families when making decisions about scholarships.
