Parent education meetings are a mandatory component of the co-op. The meetings are fun – we take care of co-op business, receive classroom updates from Teacher Stacie, explore the “joys and frustrations” of being parents, and get to know each other! We invite input for the content and try to rotate topics for multi-year families. Popular topics in the past include:
- Positive discipline
- Math and science at home
- Ages and stages of child development
- Understanding temperament
- Getting ready for kindergarten
- Summer fun activities
In addition, MBCP has a strong commitment to keeping our children safe, and each year we provide Darkness to Light’s “Stewards of Children” training, which is a prevention program for child sexual abuse. We know this is a difficult topic for many parents, but feel that the benefit of shared understanding is worth the time and effort.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month in the MBHS library, from 7:00-8:30pm.
