Popular Preschool Program Accepting Applications
SANTA CLARITA College of the Canyons is accepting applications now for its popular Preschool and Toddler Program at its Center for Early Childhood Education. The fall semester begins Aug. 16, 2005.
This is an excellent opportunity to involve young children in a program that encourages social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth, said site director Cam Valenzuela. The Center for Early Childhood Education offers a fully certified and credentialed teaching staff.
Both half- and full-day schedules are available Monday through Friday in the fall. Half-day sessions are scheduled from 8:45 to 11:45 a.m. and from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.; full-day sessions run from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. The program is open to all members of the college and community.
Parents who meet minimum income standards may qualify to receive free or reduced-rate enrollment in the program. For example, a two-person household that earns $30,228 or less per year would qualify for free preschool.
Additional details about income and other requirements, as well as appointments to visit the center, may be obtained by calling (661) 362-3541.
