Parents are vital contributors in a cooperative preschool. Our preschool operates under the direction of a teacher, supported by the Board of Directors, while parents assist with classroom duties. The teacher, who is hired by the Board of Directors, implements the curriculum and maintains standard procedures for the school program. By providing a safe, playful learning environment, we give children the opportunity to develop intellectual, social, and motor skills.
Classes are held Monday-Friday (following the Monroe School District calendar for holidays and weather closures) with the 3–4-year-olds attending on Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 to 11:00 and the 4-5-year-olds attending on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 to noon, with parents taking turns assisting the teacher.
Alpine Cooperative Preschool is a member of the Parent Child Preschools Organization.
We do not discriminate with regard to race, religion, sex, or national origin.
Tuition fees depend on the age of the child (as of September 1st) and whether the family participates in the co-operative program through parent participation in classroom programs. (Some scholarships are available those for whom these fees are difficult.)
|Co-op families||$650/yr, $65/mo||$800/yr, $80/mo|
|Non Co-op families||$750/yr, $75/mo||$900/yr, $90/mo|
