About Co-op

Members of Eastside Family Cooperative are guided by the principles of fairness and collaboration in our governance and decision-making. Membership is open to families without discrimination in regard to faith, race, color, national and ethnic origin, or lifestyle.

We endeavor to provide a safe, loving, and creative environment in which healthy development through play and child-centered activities is the primary focus. We strive to facilitate this growth through:

  • Encouragement
  • Positive discipline
  • Peaceful conflict resolution
  • Awareness and appreciation for each child's individuality

Being parent-run, Eastside Family Cooperative provides opportunities for children to forge positive relationships with adults and children outside their immediate families. These bonds facilitate:

  • A sense of community
  • Opportunities to effectively role model to our children respectful communication, citizenship and the value of trust and cooperation
  • A network of parenting resources and ongoing education
  • A reservoir of genuine support in the profound task of lovingly raising our children
