Information For Parents
At Oak Park Co-operative Children’s Center , our families are an integral part of our community. As Oak Park educators, our staff understands the importance of a child’s world both in and outside the classroom. We strive to communicate regularly with parents, answering questions, providing parent involvement opportunities, or simply exchanging information that is important to our children.
As with children, parents today come from a wide range of backgrounds in terms of education and experience, ethnic and cultural background, and lifestyle. We live in a society where there are many demands on a parent’s time and energy, and we recognize the challenges this places on our families. We are fortunate that our family community is diverse and cooperative, and we have many experiences of our families developing very strong relationships, and working together and individually to support each other and the school.
