The San Marcos Parent-Child workshop (SMPCW) is a non-profit 501(c)3, licensed, cooperative preschool and parent education class. The lecture/lab instructor is provided by the Continuing Education division of Santa Barbara Community College.

San Marcos Parent Child Workshop opened on the San Marcos High School campus in 1959 and relocated to the Grace Gathering campus in 2016.

It is operated by parents under the supervision of a Director and Assistant Director educated in Early Childhood Education and Parent Education. Parents enrolled in the co-operative morning program participate actively one morning a week in the preschool setting. Parents also attend a weekly evening parent education class at the school, where a variety of parenting issues are discussed and speakers from the community share their expertise.

Children between the ages of 2.5 - 5 years are introduced to a quality preschool experience, using developmentally appropriate practices. The nurturing, loving environment makes an ideal first school experience for your child and brings out the best in you as a parent. We practice gentle separation for both parent and child and promote non-violent conflict resolution. We provide a natural classroom setting with a wholesome, organic snack.
