Benefits for parents 
 
Cooperative preschools provide parents with the opportunity to come together to:
  • be active partners in their child's first school experience.
  • use and develop leadership skills through operating their own nonprofit organization.
  • enhance their parenting skills.
  • work with teachers to provide developmentally appropriate activities for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
  • share ideas, interests and resources with other parents and make family friendships.
  • be enrolled as a continuing education student through Spokane Community College and participate in parent education seminars.
