Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

'By choosing a cooperative preschool, parents make a commitment to participate in their child's preschool program. This involvement will prove invaluable to our children as it is carried on throughout the elementary levels of education and beyond...We are a developmental two-year school program.' -- Extracted from the Rustic Canyon Co-op Nursery School website

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

'We are a parent participation school. A parent, step-parent, legal guardian or grandparent must participate. Currently, one parent of each child must work approximately one day per month at school during school hours. Tasks are at the periphery of the two teachers conducting the class. However, interaction with the children is very much part of the parent's role while a 'stay parent' for the day. Parents must attend all parent meetings held approximately once a month during the school year, and they must accept a committee position or hold a position on the Board of Directors. There are clean-up days during the year, one of which parents must partake in. And, of course, school fundraisers should be supported in some manner.' -- Extracted from the Rustic Canyon Co-op Nursery School website
