These weekly classes are designed to be a young child's first introduction to cooperative preschool. Along with a parent or caregiver, the children, ages 12-24 months, will explore a variety of materials, sing songs, dance, play, and interact with peers.
Duties of participating families include working in the class each week, bringing snack once per quarter, assisting teacher with opening or closing once per quarter, attending a monthly parent meeting, and taking on a class job.
