In addition to tuition, school fundraisers keep our preschool going strong. While fundraising only accounts for a small percentage of the preschool’s overall budget, it is vital to Co-Op’s financial health.


$70 per enrolled student

Families are encouraged to participate in the Payback Book Sales, Fall Pie Sale, Family Fun Run, Spring Plant Sale to reach their fundraising commitments. A buyout option is available in September or families can participate in the various fundraisers throughout the school year.

The preschool also participates in ongoing fundraising programs that directly impact our teachers and their classrooms. These program include Usborne Book Sales, Amazon Smile, and Fred Meyer Community Rewards. Based on the preschool’s needs, additional fundraisers may be held during the school year.

 Information about our fundraisers can be found here.

Parent Jobs

At the Camas-Washougal Parent Co-op, parent jobs are an important part of the day-to-day running of the preschool and keeping tuition low.

Each parent is required to have one parent job per child they have enrolled.

These jobs vary in duties and time commitment but are generally 8-10 hours total during the school year.

Contact Heather Lloyd at with any questions.

Parent Helper

In addition to our teachers and assistant teachers, a parent helper will be in the classroom every school day.

Being in the classroom on a regular basis is part of what makes our preschool environment different and very meaningful to your child.

Depending on your child’s age and class schedule, parents are assigned Helping Parent dates about 1-2 times per month.
