Family Rate: The first three oldest children (living in the same household) pay full price. Any additional children may attend the co-op for free with the exception of the art supply fee.
Payments/Scholarships: We never want finances to hinder a family from participating in the co-op. If you would like to participate in the co-op but finances would not allow it, please contact Angela for arrangements. Payment arragnements can be made, and discounts are available.
Parents’ Involvement/Responsibility: While parents are welcome to observe, help, and be involved as much as they would like, we only ask that a parent volunteer one week of co-op per semester. This is just one week per family, not per child. There are many ways to volunteer: helping in the nursery, assisting a teacher in a class, assisting with clean up. Most volunteers will simply be assiting the teacher in a class. Contact Angela to sign up for the week you’d like to help. If you are unable to volunteer, we ask that you pay a $20 fee per semester. We want to continue to minister to moms by giving you a day each week to complete tasks of your choosing, but we could also use a hand here and there and will enjoy getting to know you better as we serve together.
