The Co-op experience is an ideal choice for parents who want to have direct involvement in their child's first school experience.  As a parent you are able to directly supervise and guide your child's education on every level.  Studies show time after time that direct family involvement in early education settings benefits children.  Your child will always know that education is important in your family because you live it every day.

In a co-operative preschool all parents work together as a team to operate and maintain the school. The school is run entirely by the parents in partnership with the executive committee and the certified Early Childhood Educator (ECE).  You are able to interact with a community of other parents who all share your commitment to high quality education. 

The co-op holds regular meetings to allow parents, executive committee and educators the opportunity to have open communication and voting privileges.


The co-operative experience allows you, as a duty parent, to take part and share in your child's experiences while volunteering in the classroom. By working side by side with our teaching staff you gain the opportunity to learn alongside your child while you create memories together. In turn, duty parents help to maintain low costs and affordable quality care. Stoney Creek Co-operative Preschool also has spots available for non-duty families for an increased fee.
