Parent/Toddler Program

Help your toddler adjust to the school environment by being there for them with our Parent-Toddler Program.

Our Parent-Toddler Program is designed to help children become familiar with a classroom environment while being accompanied by a parent or other trusted adult.

Throughout their time in the classroom, the child's parent or support person, such as a grandparent or caregiver, is present to share activities and guide the child. Toddlers are tactile explorers, and our hands-on program allows children and their adults to explore materials, navigate throughout the classroom, and participate in the activities led by their teachers.

Park West Cooperative currently offers two Parent-Toddler classes, each with sixteen children and two teachers. Parents provide emotional support to their children as they explore classroom activities and socialization. Parent-Toddler classes are held in our well-equipped Nursery School classrooms and our 5,000 square foot gym.

Please note that participation in Parent-Toddler I does not give students priority for admissions to Parent-Toddler II; however, participation in Parent-Toddler II or our Nursery School program does provide priority status for admissions into our Nursery School program.

"If I had kids I would definitely send them here. I'd know they were with caring teachers in amazing classrooms having fun."
