Research shows that parents’ involvement in their child’s education is a major factor in a child’s success. Being part of a cooperative means being involved with your child’s education forever. You can watch your children interact with their peers and see where their interests lie. You share values with other parents and learn about child development and parenting skills. Parents carry their parental involvement into elementary school and beyond. You form lifelong friendships that you as parents carry with you long past preschool.
Teachers become role models for you as parents. Teachers and staff members act as facilitators, not directors, of play by setting up their rooms for exploration and free choice. Your child is learning in a safe, loving, and enriching environment. Exploration at Centers leads to the development of critical thinking skills, executive functioning, academics such as reading and math readiness, and understanding the importance of history, science, friendships, empathy, and so much more!
“From the moment we left our first child at age 2 with you and as our third child graduated this year, we have felt totally secure and at peace that our children would receive the love and understanding they would need but also that their educational experience was going to be the best of the best!”
