It is well known that between birth and five years of age, children develop, learn and grow more than they ever will during any other period of their lives. It is our philosophy to provide preschool children in our care with opportunities to play, sing, dance, paint, colour, read, count, build, create, learn and explore. Hand in hand with this is the main philosophy – share. We feel that through learning to share, children learn respect. Respect for property, peers and elders. Through sharing they are also given respect. We will enrich all areas of their development; social, physical, emotional and intellectual, within a caring, friendly and supportive environment.
Parents/Guardians automatically become members of the Windsor Nursery School Society upon the enrolment of their child in the school. They are entitled to attend general Board/Parent Meetings and each family holds one vote in decisions to be made. Parents/Guardians are also entitled to hold any position of the Board Executive. Our current Board Executive is listed on our Parent Bulletin Board. A copy of the by-laws is available upon request. The nature of a Parent Co-operative requires that parents are collectively responsible for the business of the school.
These responsibilities include:
- Attending scheduled parent meetings
- Serving on at least one parent sub-committee in an active way
- Participating in school program and fundraising activities
- Participating or assisting in transportation during field trips
Please keep informality in mind; we place great value on the freedom to be ones’ self for children and caregivers alike.
