PUENTE has been awarded a grant from the California Department of Education’s public preschool program. PUENTE Preschool will provide high-quality early childhood education, that typically would be out of reach to the 40+ families we will be serving, due to their socio-economic status.
PUENTE Preschool Program provides a core class curriculum that is developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate for the children served. The program provides meals and snacks to children enrolled. PUENTE Preschool Program will also provide parent education, referrals to health and social services for families, and staff development opportunities to employees.
PUENTE is a licensed child care provider with a part-day preschool, offering morning and afternoon sessions for students ages 3-5. We educate the whole child and engage parents in their important role as their child’s first teachers. Our goal is to have 100% of students reach their state DRDP goals for kindergarten.
