How a Co-op Functions
Lincoln Park Co-op began because a group of parents wanted to give their children a nursery school experience that felt like an extension of home. Those founding families knew the importance of early education as well as the significance of parent involvement. They envisioned a school that would rely on parents to help run it. Over 60 years later, our model remains the same. Our professional teamof educators works alongside parents in the classroom; the school director works closely with the Board of Directors; and families serve on committees. Together, we make sure that each school year is a successful one for children and families, and that the legacy of the school as envisioned by our founding families continues to be an opportunity for future generations of Co-op children.
