Co-Op Board
The governing body of our school

Structure of the Co-op

The Co-op Board is the governing body of the school – an active, strong group of dedicated parents and members of the Northaven United Methodist Church that assist the Preschool Director in making all the important administrative decisions. The Co-op Board meets monthly at the school to discuss a wide range of topics, from financial management and fundraising to planning and school policy. Meetings are open, and parents and staff are welcome to attend.

What Our Alumni Say

I became a better parent through my experiences as a Co-op parent in my child's class. By watching experienced teachers in action, I learned invaluable tips on positive discipline, effective communication, active listening and so much more.
