We are Geist Orchard Cooperative Preschool, located in Fishers, IN. We are housed in the St. Thekla home located on the property of St. George Orthodox Church, although we are not religiously affiliated.

Founding Principles

Our school was founded in 1974 with the goal of creating a culturally, and economically diverse community that is united through its commitment to parental involvement in education and to fostering a respect for the environment.

Parent Involvement

GOCP is a non-profit parent cooperative overseen by a Board of Parent Volunteers. A cooperative preschool such as GOCP, is a private entity operated by its members (the parents of the students), and staffed by professional teachers.
