COVID-19 Update

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, our school is closed until further notice, however, SMPCW continues to operate virtually with a variety of online-based activities and enrichment for children and parents alike! We are looking forward to resuming school and inviting the community back to SMPCW! Please stay safe and healthy!

Welcome to San Marcos Parent-Child Cooperative Preschool!

San Marcos Parent-Child Cooperative preschool (San Marcos Parent-Child Workshop) is a not-for-profit, cooperative preschool, afternoon child care program and education class for children aged 2 1/2 to 5 years old, and their parents. Children learn, grow and make friends through self-directed play and structured group times. Parents learn about their child and themselves, and gain experience in age-appropriate activities, resolving conflicts and handling childhood challenges.​

We are currently accepting applications for our virtual activities and enrichment. Visit our Enrollment & Tuition page to learn more and download the enrollment packet.
