What makes Pacifica Co-Op Nursery School unique in the field of professional childcare is that parents are…More actively involved in all aspects of their child's care and education. Parents work with the guidance of a professional staff to learn "about their children as their children learn about the world." In other words, The Pacifica Co-Op Nursery School is parent run, but professionally directed.
Parents must work weekly shifts at the co-op, work on projects with other parents throughout the year and seek educational development. Among other benefits, this parental involvement lowers the cost of enrolling a child at the co-op.
