The Cooperative Difference

  • Parental Responsibilities
  • Our Cooperative Community
  • Community Responsibilities

To ensure the smooth operation of the school and provide our children with memorable events for years to come, families within the CCNS community participate in three commitments during the school year. Single parent families fulfill only two commitments. (Those enrolled solely in the Wee Play & Learn or Kindergarten Enrichment programs are not required to fulfill any commitment.)
  • Service on the Board or a Committee - The Board of Officers and Trustees is the policy making body of CCNS. Committee members plan special events and provide support services.
  • Participation in a Fundraising Event - Provide support (typically on-site) during one of the many fundraising events held during the year.
  • Participation in a Scrub-up - Held periodically throughout the year to sanitize toys and materials in the classrooms.
Image
Our foundation rests on the belief that education is a collaborative process between the parents, teachers and children. Without the extensive commitment parents make to CCNS – providing love, support, expertise and time – the school as we know it would not exist. When your child begins his or her education in our little red schoolhouse, you are committing to take an active role in their preschool experience. This is what we call the Cooperative Difference.
Image
To be present and participate in your child’s education is a unique opportunity we embrace with great pride. Whether attending celebrations in the classroom, assisting with special projects, or reading a story to the class, it’s enlightening to see such joy on the children’s faces when their parents are involved. It’s the Cooperative Difference.
