Every year, Co-op offers Parenting Preschoolers classes throughout the year for our families. Each Co-op family is required to attend at least one session, but you are welcome to come to as many as you like. Each session is led by our Director Molly Gareis on a specific topic, but the open format allows for group discussion based on parents’ current issues, challenges and needs. It’s an open and supportive environment for parents to share and learn together.
All classes meet in Miles Hall (upstairs from Co-op).
