DPR Agrees to Add Second Volta Park Co-Op

Last week, GM mentioned that on the agenda for the ANC meeting tonight was a request to expand the Volta Park Cooperative Play program by one class for 18-29 month-old children. Currently there is one class and it is only open to 2 1/2 – 5 year old children. There was a lot of positive response from parents when asked whether they’d be interested in a program that starts earlier.

DPR didn’t initially agree to expand the program. However, GM can report that after polite pressure from ANC Chairman Ron Lewis, DPR has reversed course and will add the second class. As a new parent and a neighbor of Volta Park, GM is excited this new option will become available.
