Gabriel Park Preschool
is a nonprofit cooperative preschool for children ages 2-5 years old. GPPS was established in 1963, and is one of SW Portland's longest running cooperative preschools. Parent involvement gives GPPS a rich, nurturing environment while also keeping tuition low.
We are excited about our upcoming open house on Saturday, January 28th from 10am to noon. Our teachers look forward to meeting potential GPPS families, and we are excited to show our amazing classroom to the community. Open registration begins during our open house, and continues until all spaces are full on a first-come, first-served basis. A wait list is available after our programs are full for those wishing to be contacted as spaces are available. A completed registration form along with the registration, supply and insurance fees and May 2018 tuition are needed to hold a spot. Please see our Enrollment page for the registration form, tuition, fees, and general enrollment process that will be initiated after the open house.
GPPS has two wonderful teachers; Teacher Jean teaches the Preschool and Pre-K Programs and Teacher Britney teaches the Youngsters' Program. Our teachers provide a classroom rich in choices and materials. They use the classroom environment to promote hands-on learning and dedicate a significant portion of classroom time to play. It is important to both our teachers that parents and teachers work together to make each child's first educational experience the best it can be. They view themselves and parents as collaborators and supporters of one another and for this reason, they love the co-op model.
Cooperative preschools such as GPPS offer many benefits to both children and parents.
