School Year Program
Our school-year preschool program is a positive first school experience for the young child. We offer programs for two, three, and four year olds. Parents can enroll their children in a 2 day/week option or 3 day/week option in the morning (9:00AM-11:30AM) or afternoon (12:00PM-2:30PM). A 5-day/week afternoon class (12:00PM-2:30PM is available for 4-year olds only).
Objectives for each class level include:
2 year old class
Children will experience fun interaction and play with other 2-year-olds. They have the opportunity to develop language and gain valuable social skills, as well as participating in age appropriate songs, crafts, structured and unstructured play.
3 year old class
Through age appropriate entertaining songs, crafts, games and supervised play with other 3-year-olds, children have the opportunity to develop and build friendships, independence, social and academic skills. Children must be potty-trained.
4 year old class
Children will learn important life and pre-academic skills through lively activities and programs, including learning their numbers, colors, shapes, calendar and days of the week. By the time children graduate, they leave with many fond memories of preschool and are prepared for kindergarten.
Current maximum class size is 14 students and 2 teaching staff. Student class size may decrease or increase in accordance with the Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) guidelines. Should classes be permitted to increase in size, the maximum class size at Baldwin Park is 16 students and Centre Concord is 18 students (except for 2 year old classes which are capped at 15 students).
All classes will follow strict protocols to maintain a healthy and safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Concord's top priority is to keep participants and staff healthy and prevent the spread of any illness, which the program has successfully accomplished over the past year. We will continue to follow the Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) guidelines and may pivot the program in the new direction as health orders are issued.
