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, attending a monthly parent meeting, and taking on a class job. Class jobs include, but are not limited to; making playdough, coordinating social events or going to the library for the teacher on a weekly basis.
