We're excited for the new school year to start and classes are filling up fast! There is still availability in our 2-Day and 3-Day classes for the 2017/2018 school year. Pre-K is currently full, but accepting waitlist applicants.
Cactus Wren Cooperative Preschool was established in 1979 and is one of the oldest preschools in Sierra Vista. As a non-profit organization, it fills a community need by offering an affordable, positive social experience for preschool children and their families. Cactus Wren is a non-denominational preschool.
The school is run by parent volunteers, who serve as executive board members, classroom volunteers and in a variety of other roles. Due to state regulations, parents are no longer required to volunteer in their child's classroom.
Parents who wish to volunteer in the classroom will still be able to do so and can spend time shadowing their own child as well as helping with chores. They will have the opportunity of earning a twice-yearly partial tuition rebate for each session they work.
Each class will have one professional teacher, a qualified teacher's aide, and when available- one parent volunteer who will help with setting up the classroom, preparing the snack and cleaning after class. Parent classroom volunteers will now be able to work only with their own child.
We believe that we can honor and preserve the heart of Cactus Wren as a parent co-op, while making these changes to respond positively to our regulatory responsibilities. This way Cactus Wren will be able to continue to offer children a wonderful, positive introduction to education for many years to come!
Co-Op Meetings are scheduled for every 3rd Monday @ 6pm during the school year. Our meetings are designed to give you the information you need, vote on pressing matters, discuss and make decisions about school events. Hope to see you there!
