Cooperative schools were formed to provide mothers with work experience along with continued and diverse educational opportunities. All that was housed in a communal effort with childcare because women know instinctively that we are stronger together.
We observe the play, first and foremost, just for the joy of it. We observe to rediscover the wonder of play. Then we also observe to follow the relationships. We look for the connections between people, between bits of information, and between the children and the natural world. And because of this, we know the children.
