To Enroll

Dear Family,

We are excited to welcome you into our Kirksville Child Development Center community!!! You have chosen to be a part of the only Parent Cooperative Preschool in our area!

Attached are forms we need to have on file before your child starts school. Due to licensing regulations by the State of Missouri, we ask that you complete all forms before your child attends school. Additionally, we’ve included a parent volunteer form, a form requesting biographical tidbits about your child, and a consent form for a variety of things. Also, don't forget to add a copy of your child's most up-to-date immunization record to the medical form.

We will schedule a home visit with your family during the first two weeks of August to get to know your child and give us time to chat about your child's personality and tell you more about our program and volunteer opportunities. Don't worry -- it is very informal!!

Please plan to attend the mandatory parent orientation on the Monday before school begins in August from 6-8 p.m. This is a vital component of making the parent cooperative model work well. Parents only at the orientation, please! We will contact you about our location.

Again, we can’t wait to get to know you and your family as your child grows in his/her preschool years!! Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your child’s journey!

K-CDC Tuition for 2021-22

As a parent cooperative preschool, we believe that building a community is very important to caring for your children. Spending time together, sharing resources and having discussions about topics related to raising young kids, and maintaining a safe and engaging environment are all part of building a community. We ask families to volunteer for a number of reasons, including:

  • To build community (home visits, parent orientation, potlucks, parent education nights, visiting in the classroom)

  • To help maintain our facilities (cleaning days, fix-it jobs, painting, etc.)

  • To fundraise for our budget and special projects

  • To maintain the business side of the program (being a board member)

Those families with a child enrolled full time (3 full days or more) are asked to complete up to 44 hours of volunteer time over the calendar year (4 hours for 11 months). Those with a child enrolled part time (less than 3 full days) are asked to complete up to 33 hours (3 hours for 11 months). New families complete their August hours by having a home visit and attending the parent orientation.

Of course, more volunteering in the spirit of creating community is always welcome!

*After recording volunteer hours, you will receive $25 off your next month's tuition. We will explain more at the parent orientation and if you have questions, please contact Katy at

In order to get the $25 off of tuition for next month, you need to log 4 hours by the 26th day of each month. The following forms can be used to record your family volunteer hours:
