Some moms are staring a home-based preschool! We are looking for others to join us.
NOTE: THERE HAVE BEEN SOME CHANGES. PLEASE SEE BELOW.
We are striving to assist our children with social and cognitive development and development of independence in a nurturing and respectful environment.
We require parent participation
We are home-based
We allow younger siblings (separate group)
We are Windward based (Oahu)
We are Montessori inspired
We will meet two days a week
We are planning to begin in June.
We are having an information meeting on May 3rd at 7:30pm in Kailua (Oahu). Please PM me for address if you would like to come.
Aloha!I know I missed the meeting but I would still like to keep in touch with what is going on with this group. What ages are you starting the preschool?
Jade-we are still looking for people! We have our preschool group 3-5. We are also having a younger group of siblings. You can PM for more information if you are interested.
I just registered on the site and was unable to PM you.
I am very interested in joining the group. (or at least finding out more about it)
I live in Kailua and have a daughter.
Please contact me at eight zero eight, eight six four, one six two zero.
I have a 3 and 5 year old and I am just moving to oahu. My older daughter will be in kinder this year but we are homeschooling and I would love to meet some people who are doing the same. Please contact me.
Hi, I just found this thread while doing a Google search. I'm interested in joining a co-op preschool, is there any information you can give me on this? I live in Kailua and have a 2.5 year old daughter. My e-mail address is [email protected] Thanks!
Hi, I know its a few months after your post, but are you still doing the co-op preschool? I was wondering if there was room for my 4 and 3 yr olds. We will only be here until October, but I would love to get together with some like minded parents/kids.
We have more room in our co-op if anyone is interested. It is a really fun and educational experience!
There have been a few changes since we started. 1) we rent space in Nuuanu 2) we meet Wed and Friday morning with a monthly field trip on Tuesday.
As before, our group is ages 0-5.
Seren26-thanks for your interest. I PMed you. If you don't get it tell me.
Hi aikane and hawaiibetsy,
Aikane- I think we not be the right place for you. We do have some babies but they are all siblings of kid who are in the co-op. We aim for 2-6 year olds. Sorry!
Hawaiibetsy-this may be good for you! If you want to PM me I can send you more detailed info. Here are a few basics. We meet in Nuuanu, however, there will be changes in the summer. Some people are leaving and we need to change our meeting area. It looks like we may have found a spot in Kailua. We (now) meet Wed and Fri mornings. We all do some of the planning and prep. We are Montessori focused and have a fair amount of Montessori work in the room. Right now we have a 2 yr old, 21/2, three 3, two 4 and a 5. PM me!
Kfillmore, thank you for your reply and your explaination for why your group is not suitable : ) I will try to look baby group now.
I have a DD who is turning 3 in a few months. We've decided to keep her at home and do Montessori with her so we'd love to join a Montessori-based co-op! I am new here so I can't PM you. Are they other ways to contact you?
Hello! I have a 2, almost 3 year old that I am looking to do a co-op with. I would like to get involved if you are still active.
We will be starting school again in September. We are now in Kailua (Oahu). We rent a space. This is a great opportunity to find time-to set aside time-to work with your kid(s). I feel like it is homeschooling IN school. If you are interested in visiting us in September post here. We would love to hear from you!
Some changes from above-we rent a space in a church (we are non faith based)
We have a wonderful year under our belt
Hi Ellen Mae,
I think your little one is probably too young. Most of the work in the room is designed for 3-6. The youngest we have will be three in a few months. Sorry!! I hope you find somewhere fun!
