Residents interested in learning more about affordable and quality neighborhood preschools in their community are encouraged to attend an event from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, April 9 at Scherer Park, 4600 Long Beach Blvd.
In addition to the presence of preschool providers, community resource agencies will also showcase services available to local families and children. Furthermore, there will be free activities and games for children, as well as giveaways.
During this “Preschool Play Day in the Park” event, representatives of local preschools will be available to discuss their programs and quality curriculum, and parents will be able to enroll their children for the upcoming school year. This event is sponsored by Los Angeles Universal Preschool (LAUP), a nonprofit organization that aims to make quality and affordable preschool available to every four-year-old child in Los Angeles County.
“We invite parents to come and enjoy a nice day in the park, and at the same time learn more about how they can give their children a better start in life by enrolling them in a quality neighborhood preschool at little or no cost,” said Celia C. Ayala, CEO of LAUP. “This event is about children’s well-being and how we can make their future bright.”
This park event is being organized in conjunction with Week of the Young Child (April 10–16), which aims to focus public attention across the nation on the needs of young children and their families, and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
