  In 1998, we added a State-approved early childhood program,
funded through a partnership with the California Department of
Education. It is a part-time program free to children ages three
and four to low-income families with qualifying income. Younger
children must be potty-trained and must turn three by September
1st of the attending school year to qualify for this program. This
program is also very high in demand and we encourage applicants
to submit requested paperwork as soon as possible to be on the
waiting list.
  The private preschool and kindergarten program was established over 20 years ago in
1989 for working families seeking quality early childhood services. We accept children
ages two to six for this program. We have open-enrollment throughout the year due to
the changing needs of parents and children that begin to qualify for our programs on
their second birthday. Teachers play a variety of roles for this age group, from potty-
training all the way to a high-achieving Kindergarten education. Our goal is to provide
the tools for academic challenge and competency, as well as socialization once children
leave our school for elementary school. Many parents have reported that children that
have graduated from our programs have enlisted in honor rolls and gone on to higher
education at prestigious universities.

We encourage applying early to get ahead in the waiting list. We accept many agency-
sponsored payments where qualifying parents receive child care payment assistance to
essentially receive free child care at our facility. Some of our current partners include
Pathways, Crystal Stairs, Child Care Resource Center, Frank Lanterman Regional Center,
South Central Regional Center, Department of Family Services, Los Angeles County,
CalWorks Alternative Payments, and Drew Child Development Center. We are open to
partnership with other agency sponsors should the agency not be in our current list of
partners. Tuition is also determined on a sliding fee scale, based on income and
whether any portion can be subsidized.
