FREE UNIVERSAL PRESCHOOL AT DANBROOK AND CENTRALIA

 
At the May 8, 2019 meeting, the Centralia Elementary School District (CESD) Governing Board was presented a proposal to provide free, Universal Preschool to three and four-year old preschoolers residing in the Centralia School and Danbrook School attendance boundaries. The Governing Board unanimously approved the implementation of the program starting with the 2019-20 school year.
 
Following a year-long study, two schools were identified for the program. Centralia and Danbrook Schools, located in west Anaheim, have populations who present a clear need for an equitable early learning intervention. Both schools have over 90% who qualify for free or reduced lunch, the highest number of students designated as English learners and the highest percentage of students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged.
 
Offering Universal Preschool at these sites will give these students a gift of time to learn English, develop strong academic skills and gain school readiness. “Centralia has a proven history of making forward-thinking decisions. For more than a decade, we have offered all-day kindergarten at these two schools to give students more time in an academic setting to be immersed in English and to develop school readiness skills” shared Superintendent Norma Martinez.
The State Preschool program offers a variety of activities designed to meet the developmental needs of preschool age children. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to enjoy a positive school experience, which will then ready them for Kindergarten.

State Preschool programs are open to three to five year old children living in the school attendance area. Eligibility is determined by current California Department of Education Child Development Division regulations based on family size and income.

There are (2) two program sessions - AM and PM each are (3) three hours per day and follow the school calendar, from August through May.
