Because Circle of Life is a cooperative preschool, parent involvement is very important. A cooperative allows you, the parent, to have a closer influence on the development of your child’s education. All Parents/Guardians that work directly with children agree to a background check, including fingerprinting at their expense.

All of the positions on the Parent Council are on a volunteer basis. One parent per child must participate by being a voting member of the Parent Council.

Fundraising is an important part of CLC. The funds raised help us run the school, purchase classroom supplies, and renovate the playground.

In keeping with the philosophy of teaching our children to be responsible stewards of the environment, we are continually moving toward more environmentally friendly and “green” fundraisers. We strive to support local businesses, and, in doing so, support our community. We have Congregational events such as bake sales and luncheons during the year.

Parents are asked to help with at least one fundraiser throughout the year.
