We are a non profit organization run by a volunteer parent and community board which meets approximately every 3 months.
One parent of each Kindergarten child attending It Takes A Village Kindergarten is expected to attend board meetings every 2-3 months (held in the evening on a weeknight for approximately 1-1.5 hours). One parent from each family is required to attend each mandatory AGM meeting in May (prior to Kindergarten and during current year of school).
Our Administrator/Teacher is a Service Dog Puppy Raiser with PADS (www.pads.ca) so please be aware that service dogs in training are in the classroom.
