Co-Teaching in each class
RVCP’s co-teaching model, with two teachers in each class, is at the root of our ability to implement our unique social-emotional learning focus and authentically individualize for each child's needs, strengths, and interests. Having two teachers present also enables better support of the children, and helps us maintain low child to adult ratios to create an engaging, positive environment.
Our Co-Op Model
We believe when parents engage in their child’s learning, the experience is more rewarding for both child and parents. Our preschool is a parent-run co-op, and its success depends on everyone’s contributions. As part of the RVCP community, all families are required to:
Work in the classroom about once a week
Maintain a family preschool job
Attend monthly parent meetings
Participate in community and fundraising events
See the full rewards of our process and details on the Co-Op Experience page.
