ANS is a parent-run cooperative.

So...what is a parent-run cooperative nursery school?

It's a place where parents are involved in the everyday aspects of our school. One parent works at the school each day along with the certified teachers during the regular hours of the program. Parents are scheduled to “parent teach” on a rotating basis which is approximately once per month, per family. In addition to parent teaching, parents are also required to serve on a committee or take on a job that contributes to the running of the nursery school. These committees include Personnel, Admissions, Fundraising, Facilities, and others. For a full list, see the current ANS Family Handbook.

There are also several general meetings, a school maintenance work day, and one or more fund raising events in which all families participate. A parent board of directors, including an elected Executive Committee, provides structure and guidance for the operation of the school.
