How Did I Play? How Do I Play?
By Lesley Romanoff, teacher at Takoma Park Cooperative Nursery School
In a UK cooperative, parents own and operate the school. The school’s bylaws outline parental involvement, as well as the teachers’, in school’s governance, on committees, and in the classroom. Our school has a set of rules and regulations and a handbook as support information for what the bylaws simply outline. These documents are crafted and voted in by the membership, which consists of parents and staff.
Little Explorers Outdoor Pre-school
By Martin Besford
Little Explorers is based at Highway Farm Activity Centre and is run by them. We operate in an Ecofriendly Timber building with a back to basics, cosy atmosphere. The building is heated by a logburner and water heated on it. We have a compost toilet and are wrapped internally with carbon zero insulation. We try to offer the best of both worlds with a secure natural indoor space, and a stimulating and challenging outdoor, enclosed area for free flow. All surrounded by an acre and a half field for the freedom and exhilaration the natural outdoors has to offer.

Not So Much a Company - More a Cross Between a Crusade and a Vendetta!
by Tom Shea
In writing this I would share with you that I regard myself as a person who looks for actions over words and believes that a picture says a thousand words. I am an “agent entreprovaracateur”, (a cross between and agent provocateur, and entrepreneur and a provoker) not normally a writer!
Fafu is on a mission to bring more joy and prosperity to all children so that they can grow and develop at their own pace. We do that by developing open ended products that inspire play based learning but we also do it by choosing to only work with Fair Trade producers.
