child development

Preschool helps children develop a range of skills that make them ready to learn when they start kindergarten.  Preschool is an important step in your child’s education. Research shows that high quality early education programs have a significant impact on a child’s chances of future success. 

We offer a variety of preschool classes. We have all day preschool and half day preschool at a several sites in South San Francisco. Preschool programs are for children between the ages of three and five years who are from low-income families. 

Children’s Center is located at 530 Tamarack Lane and offer both part day and full day preschool. The center is open from 7:00am to 5:30pm.

Hillside Preschool is located at 1400 Hillside Boulevard and offers full day preschool and is open from 8:00am to 5:00pm.

Martin Elementary Preschool is located at 35 School Street and offers half day preschool, a morning session 8:30-11:30 and an afternoon session from 12:00 to 3:00. 

our mission

Children are exposed to numbers, letters, shapes, art, and science in a play based classroom environment. They develop social and emotional skills and learn how to share, communicate and get along with other children.  

Parent Involvement:
For half day sessions, parents are required to participate one 3 hour day a month.  For full day sessions it is encouraged that you participate when possible.

We offer parent workshops on a wide variety of topics that will help families succeed in school and their community.
