A co-operative playschool is a non-profit organization run by parents who have joined together for the purpose of setting up and maintaining a low cost pre-school program for their children. Taking part in a co-operative playschool allows you to be directly involved with your child’s early education. Choosing a co-operative playschool gives you extra time to bond with your child and create memories together. Your child will always know that education is important in your family because you live it everyday.

Our co-operative is run by a group of parents elected to a Board of Directors. The Board makes decisions in the best interest of the children, while representing our membership.

Amy Hughes

I have 7 years experience with the financial institution ScotiaMcLeod which I enjoyed immensely. I am now in the midst of an indefinite hiatus raising my amazing 2 children (Nolan, 5 years & Camryn, 2.5 years).

Though I enjoy being home for my kids I miss the challenges of business. Joining the VBCP Board gives me the privilege of participating in a team & supporting my kids.
