“My daughter loved being part of the Co-op afternoon class. It allowed us to have relaxing mornings together before pre-school. I also have a toddler, so it worked perfectly for me to drop her off, get my little one down to nap, and I got some time to myself to get things done around the house. In honesty, it worked out better for our family than I could have imagined. We have very fond memories of the Co-op and look forward to our little one starting soon.”
