ABOUT US

 

WE ARE NON-PROFIT:

​Established in 1979 by area parents, A Growing Place Preschool is a non-profit parent-involvement preschool devoted to preschool children and their families.


PARENT BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The school is governed by a Board of Directors made up of the Director of Teachers and seven participating parents elected by the general membership. The Board establishes the policies, procedures and maintains the setting for the school and does the administrative functions necessary for the operation of the school. The teaching staff carries out the program. The Board meets monthly. The agenda and minutes are posted on the Parent's Bulletin Board.  All parents are welcome to attend.  The schedule of meeting dates can also be found on the Parent's Bulletin Board.
