Board Info

A cooperative preschool is a community program designed to bring parents and grandparents of toddlers together. Toddlers are adorable, strong willed, and sometimes exhausting people. Coming to Midland cooperative and being with other adults is like a breath of fresh air. Since the age groups of our classes are so close, the kids cycle through stages of development and pushing boundaries around the same times. It is a powerful thing to be able to get feedback from fellow parents about the trials of toddlerdum.

Cooperative preschools are community-based. This means that each family plays a role in helping the school run. Everyone has different strengths. Please look over the below job descriptions to see what you would like more information about. These jobs have been designed to fit into the busy family lives we all have.
