In 1915, faculty wives at the University of Chicago started the first parent participation preschool. Over 9 decades later, the parent participation movement continues to flourish.
This wonderful program provides parents with the opportunity to be actively involved in their child’s first educational experience. By working together, we create a loving atmosphere where children and parents grow, develop and learn. Many studies have shown that this type of program is most beneficial to the children, parents, as well as the community.
Interacting with a community of other parents who share your commitment to childhood and receiving modeling by the teacher as you help, gives you opportunities to learn alongside your child. Most importantly, choosing a cooperative preschool gives you extra time to bond with your child and create memories together. Your child will always know that education is important in your family because you live it everyday.
What to expect
Because we believe that parents play an important role in development we encourage all parents to share in their child's education by working in the class and volunteering their time. In addition parents will be asked to attend and participate in the following:
- Attend monthly meetings throughout the year.
- Participate in fundraisers.
- Assist with field trips, both to drive and or supervise children.
- Perform all designated parent jobs.
- Serve in one or more school committees throughout the year.
Class schedules & Tuition
We offer two types of classes: 3 year olds and 4 year olds
Our three-year-old class schedule is every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30-12:00. The monthly tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $165.00 per month.
We offer 2 different class schedules for our 4-year-old students:
- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 to 11:30am
- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:35 am to 2:35 pm.
Tuition for either of the 4-year-old classes for the 2017-'18 school year is $195.00 per month.
We offer lower tuition costs because we recognize the work and commitment parents provide while attending RSG preschool. We are proud to offer something that is both financially favorable and developmentally beneficial for both preschoolers and their families!
