What is a Co-op?

KNS is a cooperative nursery school. To ensure the success of the school and well-being of the children it is necessary for parents to take an active part in the school community.

Members are required to abide by the terms of our Enrollment Agreement when their child joins the program, which states the parents:

  • Provide all necessary health and emergency information as required.
  • Pay tuition promptly.
  •  Actively participate in our school’s fundraising events.
  • Support and participate in your child’s programs as much as possible.

You may participate in a variety of ways, i.e. sharing a special talent in the classroom, driving for field trips,  volunteering to serve on one of the standing committees of the board (building and grounds, Breakfast with Santa/Easter Bunny, fundraising, newsletter and publicity, special events) or substitute teaching.
