Not sure if a co-op preschool is right for your family? Join us at Laurelwood Preschool’s Information Open House on Wednesday August 19th, 2015 from 11:00am -12:00pm. You can meet the teachers, chat with parents, tour the classrooms and learn what a co-op is all about.
Laurelwood Preschool is a private, non-profit, non-sectarian cooperative organization. Its purpose is to give parents of preschool children a better understanding of their child, to promote the health and welfare of preschool children in their home and community and to help bridge the gap between home and school.
The cooperative nature of our preschool cannot be stressed enough. Your help and involvement is essential for our program to succeed. It affords you an opportunity to observe your child's development in organized work and play and enhances the preschool experience for both of you.
Upon enrollment, you have a voice in how our organization operates. Each year in the spring a new board of directors is elected by the membership. The board is governed by an Executive Committee consisting of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Registrar and Tuition Collector. Representation on the board consists of both Early Childhood and Pre-Kindergarten parents. Parents are encouraged to attend all general meetings and are welcome at all board meetings. The school calendar will indicate the date, time and place of these meetings.
Laurelwood Preschool has been extremely successful since it began with a handful of 3-year-old students in 1965. It is with great anticipation that we look forward to the coming year. If you are new to our community and to our preschool and have any questions about our program, we will be most happy to answer them for you.
