The Cooperative Philosophy

What is a Co-op and Why Should I Join One?

CCNS is a cooperative school, which means that the families become part owners and share in the management and maintenance of the school. At CCNS, parents are recognized as an integral part of their child’s first school experience. Owned by all the attending families, we are a democratic organization, managed by all and succeeding with the help of everyone involved. Although much of the authority may be delegated to the elected officers and committee chairpersons to make for more efficient management, each parent has a voice in the school’s operation.

The planning, organization and maintenance of the school enriches both the parents and the school. Value gained is proportionate to the time and energy provided by the parents. There are many opportunities to contribute to the operation of the school; for example, each family participates in a committee such as maintenance, fundraising, social, or newsletter. As in life, ‘cooperation’ at CCNS is a responsibility but also a pleasure. We recommend it as a way of making friends and discovering hidden talents. And while you are doing that, your children will be receiving the top-quality preschool education they deserve. An added bonus of the cooperative environment is it uniquely provides adults a supportive learning environment by offering them: -An important role in their child’s growth and development -Acceptance into a friendly group of parents who face similar challenges -A unique angle from which to appreciate their child’s skills and strengths -First-hand observation of their child’s interaction among their peers -Skilled guidance for their child by a knowledgeable, experienced teacher -Access to educational materials and programs
