"The Children's Workshop is a creative, private pre-school for three and four year old children. It is a non-profit, cooperative school administered by a volunteer Board of Directors, and licensed by the RI Department of Education. While our teacher is the only person qualified to teach the children, parental involvement is very important. Each parent becomes personally involved in serving as a classroom aide on a regular basis. The program is designed to help parents understand their child's developing independence, and their child's need to interact with others on his or her own level. The program provides parents an opportunity to observe their children interacting in this setting, and gain insight into their child's learning style. Parents develop relationships with their child's classmates, as well as with one another while working toward the common goal of running the school in an effective and harmonious manner. Our children benefit from the experience of having their parents model cooperation, and participate actively in their education.
