director's note

August, 2019


Dear Co-op Families,


Welcome to the sixty-fourth school year at the Co-op! I look forward

to seeing our returning families and can’t wait to have you meet

all our newcomers.


The staff is very busy getting ready for a wonderful year ahead.

Classrooms are being readied for your arrival. A bit of paint and

polish always freshens up our look. Teachers are sorting and

arranging to create an inviting learning space for the children.


We welcome our Co-op families to participate in our daily program.

Please talk with your classroom teachers about opportunities to come and play. Throughout the school year, parents are invited to share a recipe, family tradition, or favorite book with the class.


Our parents’ perspective and feedback are also welcomed as we make efforts to meet the needs of our community. Your suggestions and inquiries are important to our ongoing self-reflection toward Program improvement. Parent volunteers continue to bring their talents and fresh ideas to our events, keeping them current and inviting to others. We hope you will come to monthly Board Meetings to share your insights and experiences.


Again, I look forward to seeing you in September!


Pat Rackliffe

Director of Westport Weston Cooperative Nursery School
