What is the annual membership fee used for?
This is applied to maintain our website, which is a third party program created for homeschool groups such as ours. Since this is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Ontario, there are no building use fees. The only other fees would be associated with registering for a particular co-op class.

As a parent, what type of participation will be required of me in Monday Co-op?
We do require co-op participants to either teach a class, assist in a class, provide nursery support, administrative or cleaning support or assume some substantial role in the co-op so that it will be an enjoyable and successful experience for all.
Can I drop my children off at Co-op and pick them up when it is finished?
No. Drop offs are not allowed due to the cooperative effort needed to make Co-op function successfully and also due to our child security policies in place at Calvary and with our insurance company.
Are classes offered for Preschoolers?
