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
