Several times a year, Co-op offers Parenting Preschoolers classes for parents to meet and discuss parenting challenges. It’s a great opportunity to connect with fellow parents, learn from our experienced teachers and gain some valuable insights that will improve your ability to deal with some of the inevitable challenges that come with raising children!
Classes meet in Miles Hall (directly upstairs from Co-op). Each Co-op family is required to attend at least one Parenting Preschoolers session as part of the training requirements as a cooperative parent volunteer.
