For 40 years, families from the St. George and
surrounding area have worked together to keep our
school going strong. We create a unique and
enriching preschool environment for our children
(aged 27 months to 5 years) with benefits extending
to our families and our community.
A Co-operative program provides an opportunity for
parents to be directly involved in their child’s
experience, helping them develop socially,
academically, and emotionally; in the company of
their peers, and under the tutelage of an E.C.E.
qualified teacher. This is not a day-care or a
babysitting service. Membership in the co-op
requires participation, commitment and flexibility
from all families enrolled. What your child and you
take out of Co-op is a direct reflection of what we
all put in.

co-operative education. A small teacher to student
ratio (1:8) allows students to receive more
individualized attention. As parents take part in
two duty days a month (taking part in helping the
teacher run the class) they gain hands-on
knowledge of what and how their children are
learning. During this time parents also have the
opportunity to learn different ways to support
their child’s learning and to encourage success
for their child.
Participating in the co-op learning experience
gives parents the opportunity to meet other
parents, and children, at the same stage of
learning. This can lead to fulfilling
relationships for children and parents. Parents
also have the opportunity to share parenting tips
and share their concerns with other parents in a
