Steele was founded according to the following principles:
- Cooperatives are voluntary & open to all willing to accept the membership responsibilities.
- Cooperatives are democratic organizations; each member gets a vote in setting policy.
- Members invest equal amounts of money.
- Cooperatives are completely independent of school systems and other organizations.
- Cooperatives teach and train members, elected representatives, managers and employees.
- Cooperatives serve their members by working together through multi-level structures.
- Cooperatives work for sustainable development of communities.
Partnering with Parents
As a cooperative, Steele involves parents actively and directly in their children’s earliest education. This approach gives families a sense of continuity between home and preschool, creates a sense of community for students and parents, and keeps tuition costs down. Steele parents work alongside teachers in the classroom, and organize, attend, or volunteer at countless community events and fundraisers throughout the year. Steele teachers and parents engender in Denver children, at a very young age, a critical sense of community.
Awards & Accolades
Steele has been awarded an early learning program accreditation with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and a 4 out of 5 star rating with Colorado Shines.
