What is a co-op?

What is a Parent Cooperative Preschool?

Parent participation is at the heart of the co-op experience and its day-to-day workings.

In a co-op preschool, parents and caregivers are actively involved with the daily class activities of children and the creation and implementation of the school philosophy and rules. Parents and caregivers work in the classroom as teachers’ assistants under the direction of a professional director/teacher. 

Families assume many responsibilities in the administration of the school. LCP operates as a nonprofit and the Board of Directors is composed of parents who oversee the financial and operational functions of the school. The efforts of parents and their direct involvement during the school day make cooperative preschools a unique educational experience.
