I recently traveled to Kauai, HI and thought I'd check to see if there were any cooperative preschools on the island to visit. I could tell from a website that someone tried to get one started in 2012, but it doesn't appear to exist now, and I was unable to find a contact to talk to about their experience.
This made me think about how much work, love, and grit goes into starting a co-op and keeping it going year after year. We all have something very special happening in our communities! PCPI gives us a vehicle to connect experienced "co-opers" with those who are just starting out, and we can all learn from each other. Isn't that exciting?
