Being a parent participation cooperative preschool means just that: our parents join together to aid in running the school. At WPENS, every family helps out in a variety of ways and the primary goal in everything that we do is to continue to keep our school an amazing early learning experience for our children. When you join WPENS, you will find this community to be welcoming and ready to help you immerse yourself in the co-op experience. You will benefit from working alongside accredited teachers with a decade or more of early childhood development experience as well as from your fellow parent classmates. Your child will benefit not only from our program, but from seeing your participation in his/her school. Lifelong learning starts now!
