Parent Helper Program (PHP) or Nursery

koala2

Aspen Hill Cooperative Nursery School offers a Parent Helper Program for our members.  It is a nursery designed to provide babysitting for the younger, non-enrolled children of co-oping parents while the parents are assisting in the classroom.  The PHP is open at least two days a week and often times four or five.

The PHP is staffed by parents using the program and is free to our members

Parents using the PHP are scheduled on a rotating basis, either as the primary or back up.  The back-up person assists the primary PHP caregiver in the program that day and is only required to stay when the primary caregiver feels that assistance is needed.  This decision is based on the number of children in the nursery and/or the age of the children.
