The secret behind Tauxemont's 75 years of success is parent involvement. Parents are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the school, to the mutual benefit of parent and child.
We are a cooperative preschool - all families participate both in the classroom and are assigned school jobs.
Parent help in your child's classroom on a rotating basis so each child has opportunities to share a preschool day with mom or dad. Parents can share their Parent Help Days with other family members (ie grandparents) or caretakers. Families should expect to be in the classroom every 12-16 school days depending on how many children are your child's class.
Saturday work sessions are scheduled throughout the school year to keep the school clean and repaired. Working with other families, each family supports two sessions per year.
The annual Spring Fun Fair and our Silent Auction are major events during the school year. Every family participates to make these events a success
School jobs are mostly assigned based on interest, skills and capabilities. Jobs can vary year-to-year depending on immediate requirements and family capabilities. Jobs include grounds maintenance, fundraising committee, play-dough maker, membership assistant, and many more. Families should expect to spend approximately four hours a week on their jobs
