Northaven Co-Op Pre-School5

This is our fifth year as a co-op family. I love being able to participate in the classroom when it's my turn to co-op. My children have had different teachers each year and every one of them has been professional and caring. I was so glad when my youngest turned two and could be a co-op kid. I highly recommend this school. There are very few places where you really get to see what goes on in the classroom and get to know the families so well. It's a special experience.
The school does not have a strong enough anti bullying policy. They don't report biting or hitting incidents. Our family decided to move on to another school. The teaching staff is very uneven. Some of the teachers are great others are dismal. There are better schools in Dallas.
We loved the parent involvement and the emphasis on health and nutrition. This school has a strong community with parents who were once students. Some teachers were highly qualified, nurturing and undestood how to work with kids. My only complaint about the school is the lack of a process and communication on how to handle student issues/concerns. I thought it unprofessional for the Director to call us via phone to inform us that our child was not a good fit in their school. I would have expected and respected a face to face meeting for such a communication. There were actually no prior formal meetings or discussions leading up to the dismissal.
