i am lazy so I will answer here. all co-ops are different. the one we are currently with is an erichment thing and highly organized.<br><br>
for elementry ed we take kids k-6 (according to the grade they would be in in public school. so no 4 year olds in kindergarten)<br>
we meet everything thur. 8:30-12<br>
24 weeks a year<br>
subjects covered are Art, drama, music, science, history/geography, PE, and perhaps creative writing.<br>
cost is a $40 membership fee plus $60 per student with a $400 family cap (high school is considerably more)<br>
all parents must volunteer for 1/2 the class time. so either 12 weeks for full days or 24 weeks for half days.<br>
teachers are both parents and professionals who volunteer<br>
class size is limited to 15 kids per class.
