Rainier Valley Cooperative Preschool is moving to a new home at Bethany United Church of Christ in mid Beacon Hill. We're asking for your help to offset our anticipated moving costs. This summer we plan to renovate, move, and start school in September.

Since 1978, Rainier Valley Cooperative Preschool has served hundreds of families in the Beacon Hill, Mount Baker, Columbia City, and Rainier Beach areas. Year after year our program serves families who reflect the social, ethnic, religious and economic diversity of our neighborhood.  We are a cooperative nonprofit preschool entirely run by volunteer members. 

For the past 7 years we’ve enjoyed our home at the old Beacon Lutheran Church. Our current landlords asked us to hold off on signing our new lease and considered selling the building. With fully enrolled classes for next fall we quickly searched for available spaces in the Rainier Valley.

We met with the folks at The Bethany United Church of Christ. After discussing our needs and their space, they offered RVCP a 3-year lease with the option to continue to operate in that space for many years to come.  Bethany's social justice focused community and goals are a great fit for the community outreach that is important to RVCP.   The church has no plans to leave it’s current one-acre space and is thrilled to take us on as a tenant.  We couldn’t be happier with how this has worked out and are excited for the future.

But like any move it will be costly and we'd love your help. The money we raise with this effort will help with the following planned costs and those unexpected costs:

  • Security Deposit
  • Moving and pod rental for 2 months
  • Moving supplies
  • Paint supplies including Sound Proof paint
  • Sound absorbers for the celling
  • Concrete Floor Finishing
  • Rugs
  • Dishwasher
  • Locks for the pod rental

If you’d like to make a donation straight to the preschool please contact us. Tax recipts are available. If you would like to purchase an item instead of donating, contact us for links to our shopping list.  Thank you for considering!
