LCP is a cooperative preschool where you, as the parent/caregiver, are an “assistant teacher.” With the guidance of our experienced and caring teachers, you will assist with classroom activities, circle time, and outside play.
As a volunteer in your child’s class, you are a vital member of our school community. In this cooperative setting, caregivers and children have opportunities to learn together through hands-on exploration and play, as well as build friendships and community.
We appreciate and value your participation!
Choosing a co-op preschool is a decision that requires time, energy, and commitment; however, the rewards are well worth the effort. The meaningful experiences and memories that you and your child share at LCP will last a lifetime.
