THE STORY:

Little Maroons Childcare Cooperative was founded by a group of six activist families in 2005 that believed that imparting a powerful love of learning, parental involvement and cultural pride are among the most important elements in their children’s lives, especially when attending school. We believe that educating our children is a revolutionary act that we openly embrace.

Little Maroons is a parent-supported cooperative school operating from a child-led, African-centered curriculum rooted in indigenous wisdom. In the spirit of the Maroon communities, the children and their families are encouraged to embody the principles of independence, self-determination and cooperation. We offer families more than a preschool or afterschool. We offer a loving, safe, communal, personal and cooperative educational environment for your child to grow. 

My name is Sala Cyril, Mama Sala to the children and families in the Little Maroons community. I was brought on by the families as a teacher in 2005, am currently the Lead Teacher and Director and it has been my heart and soul for all these years. Since we are celebrating our TENTH school year, I am running in the 2015 NYC Marathon to embody the perseverance of our school and to raise funds for Little Maroons. 

Please join me in continuing to nurture our children and community.
