Co-op program COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19, our highest priority is the health and safety of our MVPNS community, including our children, teachers, and parents. We have been working steadfastly to prepare the school, establish new protocols, and purchase the recommended supplies. We will continue to move forward with this plan, monitoring when we are able to reopen and offer in-person classes at school.

Until we can be together in person, we will bring MVPNS virtually to you through MVPNS Connect beginning the week of September 8th. We will be offering small groups, optional larger groups and 1:1 meetings. The schedule will be created to fit both family and teacher availability. Please see our flyer below for more program details.

At MVPNS, our ultimate intention is to do whatever we can to initiate supportive relationships with our children and families UNTIL WE CAN SAFELY BE TOGETHER. We are NOT intending for remote learning to replace in-person learning. The primary priority for our teachers is to provide opportunities for social and emotional learning. Of course, we provide opportunities for learning in ALL the developmental areas (cognitive/language/motor), but social and emotional learning are key.

A maxim that the teachers keep reminding themselves, to honor our philosophy and mission as a parent cooperative school, is that “We need to plan so that parents can be with their children in meaningful ways, to be intentional.”

Once we open our campus up for in-person classes, it is very possible that the classes will be much smaller and those currently enrolled in MVPNS Connect will be offered the spots first. Additionally, if there is enough interest, MVPNS Connect may continue to run for families who choose not to attend in-person classes once resumed.

MVPNS Connect Tuition Rates:

2/Young 3s Co-op Class $275 monthly
3/Young 4s Co-op Class $295 monthly
4/Young 5s Co-op Class $380 monthly

Once in-person school reopens, tuition will revert back to our original rates

These are uncertain times but the one constant is the strength of our MVPNS families and shared commitment to steer through these unfamiliar times together.
