Valley Parent Preschool is a co-operative school. We believe the family is the most influential teacher in a child's life and we feel preivileged to partner alongside the families who attend our school. Parent involvement (family members, such as a grandparent, can participate too) is crucial to the success of our program and we look forward to working together.
Participating parents work in the classroom as an extension of the teachers. This involves supervising and engaging with children in a chosen area of the school during free choice time, and assisting the teachers in running an activity during small group time. Only staff members assist children with toileting needs or changing their clothing.
