What is the Co-op's relationship to The Miami Friends Meeting (Quakers)?
The school leases the space from the Friends, but is a totally separate legal entity.  The Friends have been very supportive throughout our formation, and we maintain active communication with them as well as with The Non-Violence Project, which is another organization housed on the second floor of the building.  The Bilingual Cooperative Preschool, The Friends, and The Non-Violence Project work together for the benefit of all organizations.
