The Neighborhood Preschool is an independent, non-profit, non-stock corporation. All parents of children using the school are members. NPS is governed by a board of directors composed of:
- volunteer parents
- the school director
- a Wesleyan University representative
- a staff representative
The Board serves as a policy-making, financial, and planning body. We also hire and oversee the position of the Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the school.
During the 2015/2016 year our regular board meetings will be announced through the parent listserv, parents are automatically added to the listserv upon registration at NPS. All parents are welcome to attend all board meetings. Time is reserved at the beginning of each meeting for visiting parent comments, questions, or concerns. The November and May meetings each year are specifically designated as general membership meetings upstairs in the school’s High Street building. Childcare and pizza are provided for these two meetings.
