St. Helena Preschool For All
What We Do:
Provide access to year-round early childhood education and parent education for underserved families in St. Helena. Scholarships enable 3- and 4-year-old children to attend local preschools before entering kindergarten, fostering their physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development and providing an educational foundation and love of learning necessary for future success.
Children who enter kindergarten with at least one year of preschool have an advantage over those without this foundation. Since our program began in 2010, we have provided 130 scholarships with 25 children and families enrolled this year. We are excited to now offer year-round preschool coverage, more days, and longer hours at our preschools. We continue to support entire families with our expanded parent education program and planned regular activities. These events for participating children and their families build on their preschool experience in an effort to involve the whole family in enriching educational and community events.
Other Ways to Help:
- invitations for our families to attend community or educational events
- sports, arts, music, etc. opportunities for our children
- parent education and/or professional services for our families
- technology devices for online parent education
