Lesson Details

  • Does it feel like it’s time for your child to be in a classroom?
  • Did your child enjoy online learning but you want to do something more?
  • Are you torn between the benefits of social stimulation and creative teachers and fear of the pandemic?

The start of a new school year brings up more questions for parents of young children. For many years, small groups of parents have joined forces to provide the benefits of early care and education classrooms. Early childhood cooperatives have sprung up out of parents with shared values banning together to share teaching and care responsibilities.

You will be able to:

  • Identify your education values for your children
  • Analyze the unique needs of your child and family
  • Identify well-understood models for educating young children outside of classrooms
  • Recognize the financial cost vs time benefits for parents of each approach
