Pike Market Childcare & Preschool ensures that families of all income levels in our neighborhood have access to high-quality, affordable early learning.

Children receive excellent care, made-from-scratch meals, and build social and learning skills. Tuition is based on a sliding scale, so that every child, regardless of income, has the opportunity to feel valued and visible in their learning community. Last year, the preschool was able to provide tuition assistance to 62% of families in the program for 66 students. 

Long committed to social justice and equity, the Market preschool implements anti-bias education and has an Equity Change Team exploring the intersection of race, gender, and income inequity to promote institutional change to better serve the school community. The preschool also commits to providing excellent benefits and fair wages for teachers, and to deepen anti-bias programming by increasing opportunities for experienced teachers to take on leadership roles with newer teachers.

The Market Foundation works with the Pike Market Child Care & Preschool to reduce barriers to child care that supports providers, enables parents to invest in their families, and contributes to a more enriched, thriving neighborhood.
