Parent Education

In order to provide the best care and promote the co-op philosophy, part of participation at our school is parent education.  These educations are opportunities for families to participate in learning opportunities in topics like childhood development and parenting techniques.

Every month on the third Thursday, one parent from each family will attend our monthly parent meeting.  This is a requirement as part of  our affiliation with Bates Technical College.  Within these meetings, we provide parent education among other thing.  We will have engaging and informative parent education and guest speakers.
