Steele Cooperative Preschool is the only cooperative preschool operating in NW Denver. Steele has operated out of a house in NW Denver for 33 years. Earlier this year we found out that our lease would not be renewed. Due to soaring real estate prices the property that had been our home was going to be listed for an amount that was beyond our reach. Thanks to years of fundraising support from the community and fiscal prudence from the cooperative's parent volunteers we were able to secure the down payment and mortgage necessary to purchase a permanent home seven blocks away from our current location.
Our new home is in excellent condition but a few modifications are required to ensure that our new home passes current child care code. We must also turn the back yard into a safe play space for the students.
