Program Information

Registration for the coming school year begins in March. Space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact us for more information.

The 7th District Tots Center co-op is a great opportunity for your child to learn, play, socialize with other children their age, and have fun! Our classes offer a varied daily schedule, featuring multiple learning centers, guided instructional time, activities geared for Kindergarten readiness, classroom visitors, and free play. Parents volunteer in the classroom with their child 1-2 times per month. Our goal is to provide a fun, enriching, and meaningful time for you and your child. Our staff strives to provide a nurturing environment in which 3 and 4 year old children can learn, grow, and transition into a classroom setting. We are located in the 7th District Elementary School Rec Room. Please contact the chairperson to schedule a visit with your child ... classes fill up quickly, so don't delay!

Tots Center - A Cooperative Program

Before completing this application, please note that our Tots Center is a COOPERATIVE program. Parents are required to actively participate on a scheduled and non-scheduled basis, over and above any volunteered duties. Parents will also assist preparing crafts, planning parties, and other various projects. Parents are expected to volunteer the following times per month:

3's Class       2 days per month, 1 party per year
4's 3 day class       2 days per month, 1 party per year
4's 5 day class 2 days per month, 1 party per year

Parents who do not wish to volunteer may "buy out" volunteer days at the following price per semester:

3's Class $200
4's Class 3 day       $300
4's Class 5 day $400

Payment for volunteer buyout is due July 1 for the first semester and January 1 for the second semester. A "buy out" essentially pays for our Class Aide to cover your volunteer hours.

Parents who do not participate in the "buy out" or do not participate in volunteering will be asked to leave the program.
