What is a co-operative?
We are a parent cooperative which means that parents are active and
essential partners with our certified teachers in the running of the school.
Parents work as teaching assistants, maintain the buildings and grounds,
participate in providing snack and organize fund-raisers. The cooperative
experience enables the school to offer programs at a significantly lower
cost than regular preschools. We are a not for profit, charitable organization.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you and your child.
The Co-Operative Program at New Toronto Nursery School provides
parents with a unique opportunity to determine what kind of preschool
education they want for their children.
Research shows that a parents' involvement is a major factor in a child's
success. As a member of the Co-Operative you will be able to ensure
the quality of the program, while still making school affordable for
Co-op parents can play an active role in: managing the school
curriculum, planning, fundraising, and classroom duties.
