Parent Obligations

Because TCP is a cooperative preschool, member families are required to give of their time and skills throughout the year. Without dedicated parent participation, our school cannot function and, at the time of enrollment, parents must agree to several obligations along with payment of monthly tuition.

Obligations include (but are not limited to):

  • Attendance at monthly parent meeting (first Tuesday evening of the month). These meetings serve to provide communication with members as well as to educate and inform as per our state licensing requirement.
  • Attendance at Orientation and walk-throughs prior to start of school.
  • Work in classroom on scheduled days
  • Contribute classroom snack periodically throughout school year
  • Work at least three Extended Day sessions
  • Serve on one of the school committees
  • Participate in scheduled fundraisers including, but not limited to, annual Garage Sale and Spring Special Event
  • Act as a driver and/or chaperone for field trips as needed
