Cooperative School Readiness Programs

The School Readiness Program adheres closely to California State Preschool Learning Foundations and Curriculum Framework and uses these benchmarks to create an engaging developmentally appropriate curriculum tailored to the needs of each student. An integral part of every one of our School Readiness classes is parent involvement through both classroom participation and parenting classes. Parents work and assist in the responsibilities in the classroom under the teacher’s guidance and support. Our goal is that active participation in early education will set the foundation for lifelong school involvement and strengthen family dynamics.
