For 40 years, families from the St. George and surrounding area have worked
together to keep our school going strong. We create a unique and enriching preschool
environment for our children (aged 27 months to 5 years) with benefits extending
to our families and our community.
A Co-operative program provides an opportunity for parents to be directly involved
in their child’s experience, helping them develop socially, academically, and emotionally;
in the company of their peers, and under the tutelage of an E.C.E. qualified teacher.
This is not a day-care or a babysitting service. Membership in the co-op requires
participation, commitment and flexibility from all families enrolled. What your
child and you take out of Co-op is a direct reflection of what we all put in.

We are the St. George Co-op Preschool, both a non-profit organization
and a registered charity. St. George Co-op Preschool has been providing
preschool education to the children of St. George and surrounding area
Sending your child to school for the first time can be a frightening
experience, many times more so for the parent than the child. You’ve
been there for their first steps and their first words. Wouldn’t you
like to be an integral part of their first school experience? Co-operative
education provides parents the opportunity to be in the classroom for
their child’s first school experience.
There are a multitude of benefits that stem from co-operative education.
A small teacher to student ratio (1:8) allows students to receive more
individualized attention. As parents take part in two duty days a month
(taking part in helping the teacher run the class) they gain hands-on
knowledge of what and how their children are learning. During this time
parents also have the opportunity to learn different ways to support
their child’s learning and to encourage success for their child.
Participating in the co-op learning experience gives parents the opportunity
to meet other parents, and children, at the same stage of learning.
This can lead to fulfilling relationships for children and parents.
Parents also have the opportunity to share parenting tips and share
their concerns with other parents in a safe environment.
