The Centralia School District’s Child Development Programs at Centralia, Danbrook, and San Marino Schools are open and accepting new enrollees for their newly expanded preschool programs.
The Centralia School District was awarded grant funding to offer additional preschool programs to income eligible students ages 3 to 4. This new expansion of the district’s award winning programs increases access for 100 more young scholars to make meaningful connections to learning by providing an optimal learning experience in a safe environment and enhance knowledge and skills to support continual paths of learning. “Early childhood education is a subject matter that is of great importance to our board and District,” shared Superintendent Norma Martinez. “With their support, we have been able to expand our early childhood education programs so that more eligible children can have a seat at the classroom table.”
CESD Kindergarten teacher Elizabeth Cruz sees the benefits of the district programs. “Students who have participated in the Centralia District Preschool Program have developed countless skills for school readiness,” she shared. “Student vocabulary is more developed, and students are better equipped to communicate their needs and solve problems. Other skills, such as listening, learning routines, sharing, and working together give them skills that will support success in kindergarten and their entire school career. Communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking begin with preschool in Centralia.”
Enrollment is open now to children who will be 3 or 4 years of age by September 1st. Child Development Services staff are available to answer eligibility questions and to help enroll families, please contact: (714) 228-3153.
