Lee Owen Stone Preschool

Lee Owen Stone Preschool provides an inclusive and welcoming environment for children ages 3-5 to begin their journey into early education through play and exploration.  As a cooperative preschool, we have a high level of parent involvement in the classroom and in the day-to-day operations of the school.  This structure allows us to maintain affordable tuition and scholarships and creates a unique community in which we can participate in our children’s education, while enjoying each other’s support and friendship.

Lee Owen Stone was founded in 1965, making it one of the oldest cooperative preschools in Oregon. 

While the school has been located in several different North and Northeast Portland locations during our long history, our current home is in the Grant Park Baptist Church on the corner of NE 34th and NE Knott. This is a wonderful site located close to Grant Park and the kids love it here!


The 2019/20 school year registration has begun. There are limited placements available in both Wednesday/Friday and Tuesday/Thursday classes. Please see our To Apply page for more information.

The 2019 fundraising auction, "Casino Royale," was held on February 23rd, 2019. It was a lot of fun, and we thank the many supporters from the community who turned out to make it a success. Thank you for helping us provide quality, affordable preschool to children in the community.
