The town of Grand Lake voted unanimously Monday to grant the Mountain Family Center access to its town-owned modular building for use as a part-time preschool.

The building will be shared with the Grand County Water Information Network, which has an office space on the opposite side.

Town Manager Shane Hale said proper arrangements should be made on how these two tennants will share the building.

The established Mountain Family nonprofit center stepped up to open a preschool this year to “prepare kiddos to enter into the kindergarten classroom,” said Executive Director Jill Korkowski.

The center reported that parents, collectively with 12 to 14 preschool-aged students, have shown great interest in having a school in Grand Lake where no such other exists.

“We do appreciate the need the community has, and appreciate what you’re doing,” Mayor Judy Burke told Korkowski and crew.

The preschool is a temporary solution to the lack of facilities in the Grand Lake area, Korkowski said, and if there continues to be a need past next summer, the center will remain committed to helping parents establish a more permanent solution.
