Policies

Q:

Can I just drop my child off at co-op?

A:

Moms or appointed guardian must remain on the church premises at all times. Since we are a true co-op and not a drop off educational program, a child may not participate in the co-op unless his/her parent/guardian is on site. (There will be occasions that exceptions can be made, but not on a regular basis.)

**If you are unable to attend a particular Thursday and someone is willing to take responsibility for your children (guardian), that may be arranged. It is up to you as a parent to make these necessary arrangements and to notify the director of this arrangement.

Admissions

Q:

Can my 3-year-old attend the preschool class?

A:

Preschool is reserved for 4-5 year olds.  3-year-olds are allowed ONLY if they have older siblings in the co-op.  

Q:

How much does Young Explorers cost?

A:

There is a once a year $60 membership fee per family.  This membership fee covers the cost of administrative expenses, website fees, community serice project fund, and background check (once every 2-3 years)

Each student registers for classes each semester and pays the class fee for that semester. 

Field trips are paid separately at the time of the field trip.

Q:

Why does Young Explorers require a background check?

A:

Young Explorers cares about the safety of their children & families.  A background check is required for any adult planning to regularly attend co-op with their children. In order to keep our children and families as safe as possible Young Explorers will do a full background check every 2 years, unless otherwise warranted. $15 is added into the registration process to cover the cost of this background check. This is not meant to be an infringment of privacy, but an insurance for the safety of your children.
