Posted in

Little Big Horn Co-op is a group of children, parents, teachers, and citizens who are concerned about the closing of Hand in Hand Day Care in Sheridan, Wyoming on June 3rd, 2011. Please join us to help ease the transition for our families, friends, and the great staff at Hand in Hand who have been given 2 weeks notice to restructure their lives.

We are a community of like-minded individuals who are interested in joining forces to create an organization committed to providing a positive, nurturing environment for children, and to prepare our kids for the amazing things they will accomplish in life.

The cooperative should be designed to support cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development of children from birth to kindergarten age. Parents will be required to take an active role both inside and out of the classroom. Our goal will be to provide a loving, creative environment for our children with an emphasis on cooperative play.

We are concerned for the health of our the Sheridan community with the closing of this facility and for the burden that will be placed on young working families. We are also very concerned for the teachers and staff who will be laid off in two weeks and for the severe hardship that will be placed upon them (some are single mothers).

The strain that will be placed on our community cannot be ignored. Please join this page to get updates on how we all can team up to make Sheridan a better place for our kids. If you would like to get involved, please post your comments on the wall page.

Two weeks and counting.....
