Welcome to MCPC! 

Founded in 1933, MCPC is a non-profit, parent's cooperative preschool. We are a supportive community of 25 disparate families, working together to facilitate our children's development and to operate our beloved school. Our programs include a two-year weekday morning preschool, an early afternoon transitional bridge-kindergarten program, and classes for toddlers and their parents or caregivers.



Preschool Program

As a parent-cooperative, parents and children grow and develop together in our two-year program. We provide morning, play-based classes, and require parent involvement at the school one day per week.

Bridge-K Program

Our one-year Bridge-K Program provides an intimate afternoon program with a play-based and developmentally appropriate curriculum for children ready for more challenge and decreased parent involvement.

Toddler Play Program

Our Toddler Play program provides experiential classes for young children and their parent or caregiver, and are the perfect introduction to a preschool environment.
