Kapka parents experience the school along with their children. We all work, learn, grow, and have fun together. Although the time and effort you give may be significant, most parents find the rewards of participation in our co-operative are immeasurable. Being in the classroom allows us to see how our child is doing, to know his teachers, friends and their families, and to feel a part of a home-school team.
Working with other parents builds a strong sense of community and belonging. Kapka parents often form strong friendships. We rely on one another. When one of our families experiences an illness, a birth, or some other overwhelming event, we usually coordinate meals and childcare to help ease the transition. Being a part of a cooperative school can be a wonderfully bonding experience.
"As parents, we come to KapKa with as many viewpoints as our children. Within this community I have learned new ways of looking at parenting and relating to others. No doubt about it--being at KapKa is a big commitment--but it is one that pays you back ten-fold."; - KapKa parent
