Since we are a family run cooperative, each parent is required to help. Each mom will be a teacher for one hour and a helper with another class or cleaning. You will usually have 2 hours to visit or work on personal projects.
We require all parents to volunteer in 2 co-op positions every semester. (teach or help in a class). When you are not teaching or helping you can visit with other moms (many people bring projects, like knitting to work on or a book to read.) You may leave if you arrange to have another parent on site be responsible for your children and let one of the directors know.
All families also take part in a service project at the church each semester.
We meet at Holy Nativity Church in Meridian.

Each semester is $60 per new families, $50 for returning families. All families are new each Fall semester. The extra $10 each Fall semester pays for insurance which is only required once per year. This money is used to rent our meeting place, pay for our website, and cover basic business supplies (stamps, checks, & office supplies)..
There is also a class fee of $10 per student per semester ($5 for Pre-K) to purchase supplies for the individual classes and the basic school supplies provided by the co-op. (Nursery age children do not have to pay this.)
The classes we offer largely depend on what our families want and what parents want to teach. Some of our classes have included, PE, art, history, music, drama, public speaking, and science. We are open to any class any parent might suggest.
