Early Childhood Education

Kidworks - Preschool Program

  • An outdoor classroom has been constructed in order to expand the number of students participating in the Preschool Program. KidWorks’ preschool students receive daily instruction during the week and learn through the exploration of the preschool’s enriched environment. The majority of students come to the program speaking no English, and by the time they graduate, all their classes and lessons are done 100% in English.

Padres Unidos - Parents as Teachers

  • The Parents as Teachers Program works with parents of young children in school readiness and early literacy to be their children's first teachers and get them ready for school. Children ages 3-5 years old participate in pre-reading and pre-writing activities facilitated by a trained parenting educator in small groups. Parents engaged in the curriculum are also given homework to practice with their children each week in order to prepare them to be their child's first teacher. The Parents as Teachers Program educational module relies on the three elements of Outreach, Support and Education in order to strengthen the community's commitment to be part of a safety net system in our multifaceted culture.
