Parent Opportunities

At Seaside PPNS, parents and guardians are responsible for fulfilling all the functions necessary for running the classroom, with the guidance and instruction of the Director.
Members of Seaside PPNS elect a governing Board of Directors that assumes various
oversight duties, which are outlined in the school's Bylaws.

Being a participation preschool member means giving an extra bit of time and in return,
creating an enriched learning environment for your child.


participation requirements

  • Per SB 792 vaccination mandate, parent volunteers need to have proof of Measles, Pertussis, and flu vaccination. You may sign a personal belief exemption for the flu vaccine. Parents must also be tested for TB (tuberculosis) prior to working in the classroom.

  • One parent works 2-3 times per month. On your work day, parents are required to come to class 15 minutes early for set up, and stay 15 minutes after for clean up.

  • Any adult working in the classroom with the children is required to be Infant and Child CPR certified.

  • One parent must attend Seaside's General Membership Meetings. There are four meetings per year. The dates will be given out at the beginning of the school year.

  • Parents are required to participate in and attend our Annual Fundraiser each year. As a non-profit school fundraising is extremely important for the continued success of the school. The fundraiser is not only fun, but it also gives parents a chance to dress up and have a night out to themselves!

  • Each parent is required to take on an chairmanship, basically a job. Jobs range from making playdough to outdoor grounds keeper. Each family will choose the job they would like in the beginning of the year. If two families want the same job, we will pull out of a hat to determine who gets the position.

  • Each family must work one clean-up day. Four clean-up days are scheduled throughout the year on Saturdays beginning at 9am.

  • All parents are required to uphold Seaside's Code of Conduct.
