Sibling Care Co-op

During the 2017-2018 school year we will be having sibling care located on-site. Please let the registrar know that you want to enroll in the sibling care. The cost will be determined soon.

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, in a room off of the Preschool’s 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 2016-2017 year the cost was $85, as an example.

Scheduling of sibling care is handled by the parents who are involved in sibling care. Sibling care is only offered on specific days of the week, not during every preschool class. It has been a parent driven collaborative effort that has been successful every year.
