Parental Responsibilities at BNS

At BNS, our families work together to make our co-op preschool a fun and successful environment.

Participating BNS parents will:

  • Co-op in the classrooms on a rotating schedule – either as a “regular” or “limited” co-oper. For more details, see our Co-Op Options and Tuition page.
  • Provide the classroom snack on a rotating schedule.
  • Make playdough for the classroom once a year.
  • Follow teacher guidelines for tasks to be completed in the classroom.
  • Be attentive to the children’s safety at all times.
  • Promote positive interactions between children and adults.
  • Support the BNS approach to fostering children’s independence.
  • Have fun and learn with the children.

In addition to classroom participation, all BNS parents are responsible for:

  • Serving on either a School Committee or the School Board.
  • Participating in Unpacking Day, Packing Day, two Saturday morning work parties and our fall and spring Rummage Sales.
  • Attending up to four parent meetings throughout the school year, which are usually held in the evenings.
