Co-op Responsibilities

 

Highlands is a co-op preschool, which means that parents are involved and frankly, kids love this!

 

Having parents in the classroom helps make the classroom run more smoothly, keeps tuition low, strengthens the relationship between the home and school environments, and provides a window for parents into their child’s life at school.

 

In addition to volunteering in the classroom, parents attend four parent meetings, held every other month, and participate in two cleaning days per year.

 

Families support the school by performing at least two classroom tasks per year (such as buying sand for the sandbox, cutting out shapes for a project, bringing a few pumpkins for Halloween, etc.), providing items (such as food) for school parties, and actively participating in the school’s annual fundraising efforts. Highlands is operated by a parent Board, with parents leading the administrative jobs at the school.
