What a blessing this co-op has been to my family. I have had the opportunity for almost 3 years to have two different children attend Grow with Me. I have seen my girls grow in sweet and lovely ways…ways that could have only come about by joining a community of like minded families. I was able to gently transition from our experience at home where I was with them pretty much 24/7, to a setting where there are loving families who became like our extended family. All the while, I was able to be in the classroom to support my kids and to be a part of their learning process. This was an extension of our home life, which gave my children a chance to ease into an experience with new caregiviers.
The best part of this model is being in the classroom with my children, seeing the wonder through their eyes. Giving them opportunities to nurture their imaginations, to learn about relationships and communication, to play and have fun and explore with beautiful, natural materials. And one of the best parts is that we have professional teachers who are planning activities and leading the class with great care. So I don’t have to be the best teacher to provide the best environment for my child. And I don’t have to completely remove myself from my child’s school experience. I can have both! And now, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
