A meeting is planned tomorrow for the next step in organizing a new West Seattle cooperative preschool to open at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center beginning this fall. From organizer Benni Sack:
We have a preliminary commitment for space at Youngstown beginning in August, 2010, and now it is time to figure out who is interested in participating in this new coop!
Here is what the preliminary parameters might be for an endeavor like this:
– Your toddler will be at least 24 months by August, 2010, and no older than 4.5 years old by August 2010
– You are interested in volunteering in the coop on a regular basis (the volunteer positions and duration of them will be decided by the coop board)
– You are potentially interested in belonging to the coop board, which will need to meet online and in-person on a regular basis to bring together the particulars of the coop
Here are the meeting particulars:
Saturday, March 20th, 2010 @ 10:00 a.m.
Mosaic Community Coffeehouse – in the demitasse room (kids playroom), 4401 2nd Avenue Northeast (map)
They have coffee, tea, and pastries there which can be purchased by donation (it’s a community, not for profit coffeehouse). I will bring some extra treats as well. PLEASE BRING YOUR LITTLE! We can have a play date!
This will be an informal meet and greet to try to ascertain the level of interest and participation from the community. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can’t make it but would still be interested in participating, please contact me by e-mail and let me know your level of interest. Board members are encouraged! We have a lot of fun stuff to get done this spring and summer to get ready!
She says the meeting’s being held at this particular coffeehouse because it has that kids’ playroom.
