What is a parent participation nursery school?

A parent participation, or cooperative, preschool is a non-profit, non-sectarian, democratic organization where each family shares in the planning and operation of the school. Parents participate in the program on a rotating basis, serving as assistants to a professional preschool teacher and staff. The efforts of parents and their direct involvement during the school day make parent participation preschools a unique educational endeavor.

The member schools listed here admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally made available to students at the school. These schools do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
