Grayslake Cooperative Nursery School Holds Open House Events July 7 & July 21
Grayslake, IL: The Grayslake Cooperative Nursery School (GCNS) will be holding Open House events from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, July 7 and Saturday, July 21. GCNS is the area’s oldest cooperative preschool, offering programs for 2- to 5-year-old children taught by certified teachers. GCNS is located on Route 137 at The Shops of Prairie Crossing in Grayslake.
With a few class openings remaining for the 2012-2013 school year, prospective families are invited to tour the school, talk with board members and current families, and register on site. GCNS offers a variety of two-day, three-day and five-day class options.
The 2012-2013 school year marks the school’s 36th year in the community. It also will be the third year the school has offered an Enrichment class designed to enhance the exploration of math, science and literacy for 4- and 5-year-old children. The class gives parents an opportunity to enroll their preschoolers five days a week, and it also serves as an extension of the school day for half-day Kindergarten students.
Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and space is limited. Information on class schedules and registration forms may be found on our website at www.grayslake-coop.com or by calling our Registrar, Tiffany Kobeck, at 847-986-9820.
GCNS welcomes families from Grayslake, Hainesville, Round Lake, Gurnee, Mundelein, Libertyville, and the surrounding areas. The school has been providing children with a quality educational experience for more than 30 years. GCNS was founded in 1976 by a group of local mothers looking for an enriching and nurturing preschool.
Classes are taught by certified teachers, but as a cooperative, parents and staff work together to provide children with a positive preschool experience. As educational research consistently demonstrates, parental involvement in schools is an essential element for childhood success in school. GCNS takes that message to heart as parents and educators are dedicated to developing children academically, emotionally, socially, and physically in a nurturing, family-focused environment.
