for inquiring about Prospect Co-op Nursery School. Following are
answers to some frequently asked questions.
Q: What are my co-op
A: There is a parent in every class, every day. You will be asked
to help out in your child's class between 5-7 times a year for the
younger classes and 6-9 times for the older classes, depending on
the class and the number of children enrolled. Parents with more
than one child in the school need not sign up for more than ten
days during the school year for the combined classes. In addition,
you will be asked to serve on a committee and to help with the upkeep
of the classrooms and the playground.
Q: What are
the class sizes and teacher/student ratios?
A: Each class has a teacher, an assistant teacher and a helping
parent every day. There are twelve students in the 2's; 18 in the
Tu/Th 3's; 15 each in the MWF morning 3's and afternoon 3/4's; and
approximately 21 each in the morning and afternoon 4's.
Q: Does my child
have to be potty-trained by a certain age?
A: No. However, our policy is to call a parent to come in to change
his/her child's dirty diaper; if the parent is not available, the
helping parent usually lends a hand. And if your child is potty
training, we are happy to help facilitate the process.
