As they get old enough to attend, my children have been going to Crete Cooperative Preschool since 2003. This year my third daughter will be attending the morning three-year-old class. The wonderful thing about this preschool is that the parents are required to help out periodically in the classroom. The kids love it when it's is their turn for a 'special day' and have their mom or dad attend school with them. Because the parents spend some time in the classroom, the tuition is much more affordable than some of the other preschools in the area. It's really worth it to see the kids' faces beam with pride and pleasure when they see that their parents care enough to spend time in the class with them.
