All parents serve on the school committees that are responsible for many of the day-to-day functions of the school.

The Preschool is a non-profit corporation comprising parents/guardians of children enrolled in the school. The school is a cooperative organization, which means that full responsibility for running the school is shared among all families currently enrolled.

The hours for the Preschool are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. (Early care is available from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. Extended care is also available from 1:00-6:00 p.m.)

To supplement the regular program the Preschool offers an afternoon "Playtime" program from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. on regular school days only.
The Grant Park Cooperative Preschool was only a concept in January of 1999, when a group of parents and St. Paul's representatives gathered at the home of Gabriela Garcia to discuss the possibility of starting a cooperative preschool in Grant Park. Through the dedication of parent and community resources the school opened the doors to the first classroom in September of 2000. Today, the school is a vital part of the community, serving aproximately 150 children ages one to four.
The cooperative nature of the Preschool is crucial to both its identity and its future. It is the commitment and enthusiasm of each member that makes the Preschool a vital and growing operation. Parent participation at the Preschool is so extensive and varied that there will be many ways for you to find your niche.
