Greenbelt Nursery School is holding its annual open house on Saturday. Parents of prospective students can mingle with current parent-members of the cooperative, while sipping Starbucks coffee and eating homemade baked goods.
The open house runs from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and also offers parents a chance to see the facility, meet staff and parent-members, and ask questions. And it is the first day to register for the 2012 - 2013 school year.
Nursery school Director Lisa Meyer said parents can bring their children with them — the classrooms will be open.
It's the 70th year of the nursery school, which was founded in 1942 — and currently serves 2 to 4-year old children. Members pool their resources together in the cooperative. Parents pitch in, helping out in the classroom, on committees, in housekeeping and in other ways, Meyer said.
