We are a group of homeschooling and unschooling families from the Philadelphia area working together to provide a gathering place for our children to engage in learning and social opportunities. Our mission is to provide a quality diverse, secular, and inclusive environment in which children are nurtured while engaging in classes and activities in a climate of mutual respect.
Day, Time, and Location
We meet weekly on Tuesdays from 9:30–3:15 at the Unitarian Society of Germantown located just off Lincoln Drive in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia. Teens/tweens may also attend Thursdays from 9:30–1:30. Learn more about the Teen/Tween Program here.
The Unitarian Society of Germantown is located just off Lincoln Drive. The best place to park is in the parking lot off of Johnson Drive.
Co-op members actively participate in the running of the co-op, as we have no paid staff. We have created an exciting and interesting place for our young people to learn, socialize and explore.
Each family is expected to contribute a certain number of work hours per trimester, determined by the needs of the co-op.
Members also participate in a committee to help with the many aspects of keeping the co-op going. These committees are Admin/Finance, Membership and Social, and Operations.
There is a financial commitment for each trimester. A $25 non-refundable membership fee is due with membership application.
The current cost of the co-op is $25 per week per family for the Tuesday classes. Each trimester consists of ten or twelve week periods which results in a total payment of $250 or $300. Payment is generally divided into two installments and is due in full before the beginning of registration for a trimester.
There is an additional cost for the Thursday Teen/Tween Program (TBD).
There is a $25 membership fee when you join the co-op. All fees are non refundable.
