Family Collective Program

MISSION:

Ashland Community Preschool will continue to utilize its stated mission of providing Montessori based education to preschool age students while valuing and utilizing family input and work. This Fall, we will work together to provide guidance and activities from home while fostering friendships and community throughout the week in small group “parent and me” settings with guided outdoor education. “Community” is part of our name and we will continue to work together in our Co-Op style to support students and families while maintaining our community presence in Ashland and surrounding areas.

FAQS

I see you gear your curriculum towards 33 months- 5 years old, can my child outside of this age range benefit or participate?

We will be following our curriculum style that is generally based on this age range, but if you feel that your child that is slightly younger or older can benefit please join us! During this semester we are not bound to a DSS regulation for age because your child will not be under sole supervision of the preschool and we will not be opening in our traditional style. You will be responsible for your child at all times during “parent and me” meetups. 

Can my child’s siblings be present during small group meet-ups?

We have always been a sibling friendly environment when parents are participating in classroom activity, so they are welcome! We do ask that you apply the monthly $5 household fee to your tuition if any of the siblings regardless of age will be utilizing materials or participating in the activity.

Who is providing and scheduling your current activities and meet-ups? How does my family contribute?

We have qualified teacher (experienced with ACP specifically) receiving a monthly stipend for contributions to virtual content and consultation of content.  Additionally, our Board of Directors, made up entirely of currently enrolled families, is providing content and direction for activities and meetups.    We have many resources at the school, a wide array of expertise and ability on the board, and veteran ACP experience to provide engaging and age appropriate activities. We encourage families who enroll in this program to join us in activity design and contribution.

Can we plan on the school opening traditionally in the winter?

Currently, we are not guaranteeing traditional opening. We plan to strive for it if employment, government and local regulations, co-op discretion, and safety measures allow.
