A Message From Our Board Co-Presidents
Choosing a preschool for our precious little ones was probably one of the most daunting tasks to date. We can remember the time we spent worrying about them and their development in class. We wished we could be flies on the wall to discover what our children were like in school.
We decided it was in our families’ best interest to find an educational experience which allowed for parent participation.
It was then that we stumbled upon this Cooperative preschool. We as parents, within the school community, come together and donate our time and expertise in running the facility. ICNS is a not-for-profit organization, operated by a dedicated parent board that employs an Educational Director, Administrative Director and Experienced Teachers. Each class has a Teacher, an Assistant Teacher and a “Parent of the Day”. YES, you get to be the fly on the wall!
We at cooperative based preschools are fortunate enough to be able to participate in our children’s education by supporting our teachers and the school itself. This format also affords parents and teachers the opportunity to get to know each other better. Parent participation at this level effectively boosts the self-esteem and emotional well-being of our children and in effect enhancing our parent-child relationships.
As Co-Presidents of the Board, we will ensure that we make the best effort investing in our children’s educational and social development now and in the future.
