Our early childhood program for 2-5-year-olds is now a parent Co-op! Families who enroll will pay a monthly membership to help cover supplies and materials and will be required to work two half-day shifts with the children, 8:30am - 12:30pm, with an additional four hours of volunteer time per month.
