For the convenience of parents with younger children, we offer a parent-run sibling care co-op. This is a separate entity from and operates independently of BC Crossroads Co-op Preschool. The sibling care is located on-site of the preschool in a room off of the main room.
Parents participate in the sibling co-op by sharing duties of child care during the time your child is in preschool. All families that participate share equally in the cost of covering insurance fees. This cost will vary dependent on how many families participate. During the 2011-2012 year the cost was $55, as an example.
Scheduling of sibling care is handled by the school's scheduler. Sibling care is only offered on specific days of the week, not every preschool class. It has been a parent driven collaborative effort that has been successful every year.
