Why a Co-Operative Education?

Co-Operative education provides a learning environment where parents and teachers work together for the common goal of quality education for the children in their care. The Co-Op recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children. It encourages families to share their interests and talents in the classroom, on a Board of Directors, or on Committees. This type of education gives a powerful message to a child — school is important to his/her family. With it, children develop a strong, positive attitude toward themselves and education.

Co-Operative education gives parents the unique opportunity to actively participate in their child’s education. Parents are able to get to know their child’s teacher and friends in their class and see, firsthand, what their child is learning. Children enjoy sharing the time in school with their parents. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in their child’s classroom. However, it is not mandatory.
