A Unique School Experience

The Children's Coalition of Galveston is a not-for-profit parent co-op and pre-school.  Founded by working parents and passionate teachers for Galveston's children and families, ChilCo seeks to create a place where children thrive, explore, and play in a safe and nurturing environment.  The school is governed by a board of directors comprised of parents, teachers, and the program's director.

Children's Coalition of Galveston offers:

  • Quality full-time childcare services for children ages 6 weeks to Pre-K 4 as well as an after-school and holiday-care program.

  • Whole-child, play-based curriculum for infants through Pre-Kindergarten

  • Low child-to-staff ratios

  • Experienced, professional classroom teachers, with very low turn-over

  • Convenient school hours Monday-Friday 6:30am-6:00pm, 50 weeks a year

  • Plenty of structured and unstructured play inside the classrooms as well as in our outdoor play area.

  • Children may start before they are toilet trained and they are supported throughout this developmental process.


As a non-profit cooperative, fundraising is a part of our existence. We appreciate any donations.
