We acknowledge that At-Risk-Together Co-operative School is run on Treaty 6 Territory, traditional homeland of the Nēhiyawak, Lakota, Dakota, and Métis Nation. We pay respect to the First Nations and Ancestors of Turtle Island. We are committed to the work of conciliation and decolonization of our thinking and actions. We are further committed to ensuring ART’s preschool programming includes age-appropriate curriculum on residential schools, Treaties, and Indigenous peoples’ historical and contemporary contributions to Canada as described in the TRC Calls to Action.
ART Co-operative was established to provide a safer in-person schooling option for immunocompromised and higher health-risk families.
Our flagship initiative has been to establish a preschool and licensed childcare centre where health, safety, and social learning co-exist.
We are pleased to now welcome families with a low-risk tolerance for infection for other reasons. If you think ART might be the right choice for your family, get in touch!
We are currently exploring our next phase of work in ensuring safer in-person learning - stay tuned!
ART Preschool truly is a safer in-person environment for learning and socialization. The policies and protocols have allowed us to be open for a full year without any illness transmission from one family to another. With the high level of respiratory illnesses in the community this year, I believe this is a remarkable accomplishment.
When we started our kids at ART Preschool, I was expecting better safety, but I am delighted at the quality of the learning, the coziness of the environment, and the sense of community. It's really a testament to the fact that you don't have to choose between safety and a vibrant learning environment, if you apply all the science you can!
