GGKA Ellis StreetIn April 1993 the preschool closed to be renovated and reconstituted following a decline in enrollment and shrinking endowment. The preschool reopened in early 1995 with support from individual donors and several foundations, including the Mervyn Brenner Foundation, the Irvine Foundation, the Miranda Lux Foundation and the Hearst Foundation. The preschool building and rooftop playground were completely renovated, and a small parking area on the west side of the building was replaced with a playground and garden.
