March 13, 1962 t MINN; /IINNEAPOLI NEW ULfc . , MANkATO Phone CY 4-3535 - Your Newspaper No principal... but a principle. .. runs this kindergarten u/ * >•< ' r It's a cooperative kindergarten ; ;: run on cooperative principles. It all started when a group of mothers in a midwestern city discovered that their school district had no kindergarten. Private nursery schools were beyond their means BO they organized a cooperative, found suitable quarters and hired a teacher. Each of the founders bought shares which provided the money for toys, books and other supplies. Through their cooperative, these mothers were able to give their children advantages which would otherwise be denied them, This kindergarten cooperative differs widely from the farm and consumer cooperatives most familiar to us, but it is another illustration of how the cooperative form of enterprise can be used by anyont to meet any humqn need, NO, 8 OF A SERIES PRESENTED BY THESE CO-OP ElEVATORS BURT CO-OP ELEVATOR . . , IRVINGTON CO-OP ELEVATOR TITONKA CO-OP ELEVATOR , FARMERS CO-OP ELEVATOR, Bode J.
