For 25 years, Portland Tillamook Cooperative Preschool has called the Presbyterian Church of Laurelhurst home. That history is about to change. Last October, the Tillamook Preschool board of directors received notice that the school must vacate its classroom at the end of the 2022-2023 school year. The preschool is seeking help to find a new space to lease.
“We are saddened and truly grieving the loss of our amazing location,” said Tillamook Preschool’s board president, Anne Lagasse. “As a small nonprofit, we are now looking to build a strong relationship with an organization that has a space well suited to support the needs and minds of young children.” Started in 1973 in a house on NE Tillamook Street, the preschool has evolved into a mixed-age, play-based preschool enrolling 38 children and families each year.
