Mission Statement

By focusing on the whole child, Abiding Branches Cooperative provides a safe and nurturing Christian education to children 33 months to 5 years of age.

Parent Classroom Helpers

Experts recognize the importance of children's early learning experiences. They know that a parent's lively interest and interaction stimulate a child's mind and influence a lifetime of learning ability. Parents at ABC Preschool volunteer in their child's classroom from 6-9 class periods per year.

Parents select the dates they help in the classroom at the child's pre-admission conference. There are one or two parent helpers in the classroom at a time depending on the number of students in the class.
