Welcome to Carp Co-operative Nursery School!
Carp Co-operative Nursery School is a place where children from ages 2.5 to 4 years old can broaden their social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth through teacher directed and self-directed learning. It provides children access to a variety of play materials and a safe space to develop along side others their own age. The school offers an atmosphere where children can experiment, be free and spontaneous, and where they can take pride in their own accomplishments and learn to trust friendly, helpful adults. During the school year, the program runs Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 11:30 am. In the summer, the program runs Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
We are a co-operative, non-profit, non-denominational school that is administered by an executive committee of parents. Our objective is to provide an enriching preschool program while maintaining affordable fees. The program is led by an early childhood educator and a teacher assistant. A parent (guardian/care provider) of each child is required to volunteer in the classroom and provide a snack for the students on a rotating basis. As well, each family volunteers for a specific responsibility for the school year. Classes are a maximum of 16 children from ages 2.5 to 4 years old.
