  • We welcome visitors. We meet on Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Please contact us to schedule a time to come meet us and see if we are a good fit for your family.
  • We are located at 400 Reading Rd., East Earl, PA 17519. Please enter under the portico and head downstairs.
  • We are not a drop-off co-op. A parent (or guardian) needs to be on site when the student(s) is on site.
  • Each family serves one hour per week.  The assignment is given at the beginning of the semester and is held for all 10 weeks.  In assigning service positions, the needs of the co-op are matched with the needs/ability of the family, and the family’s scheduled time to be at co-op.
  • Families pay the teacher directly for their course on the first day of class.
