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.

 

Thanks,

melissa

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.

Aloha- I have been looking for something like this! My kids are almost 2 and almost 4. We live in Manoa and my background is in special education... And currently in making all sorts of crafts with toddlers smile.gif. Hoping I can learn more about this group? [email protected]

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!

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

I would be interested to get some more information, too. Are you still active Wed/Fri mornings? What time? My son is turning 2 this weekend - it sounds like there might be other kids his age there? We just moved to Hawaii from Wisconsin. We were active in a parent/child Montessori program there and both loved it. Might this be a good match for us?
kfillmore's Avatar kfillmore 04:22 PM 09-11-2013

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!

Kfillmore... Doing research on where to live while my husband gets transferred to Waikiki. We are very attracted to windward side, and like The area where you all are now meeting to settle in. I did parent-led-co-op-preschool for 3 years with my now 7-year-old-2nd-grader. Looking for similar for my younger, turning 3 in January, to start in early January. I look forward to getting more information about possibly starting the new year with your group!
