Get your 3 or 4 year old children ready for Kindergarten!
The Lake County Office of Education Child Development Program has you covered for preschool around the lake! LCOE has State Preschool programs at 8 elementary schools for 3 hours a day, morning and/or afternoon.
State Preschool programs are either free to income qualified families, or require a share-of-cost based on income and figured on a sliding scale. Children receive breakfast or lunch daily.
We currently have 3 hour programs at Burns Valley, Eastlake, Kelseyville, Lakeport, Lower Lake, Middletown and Pomo Elementary schools. Our programs integrate literacy, math, art, science, sensory exploration, imaginative play, and physical activity so that your child receives the optimal balanced learning experience.
Here is a sample schedule of what a 3 hour preschool day might consist of for your child;
8:00-8:15 Hand wash, sign in, books with parents and staff
8:15-8:30 Greeting circle (includes oral language/poetry or science links)
9:00 -9:30 Outside play
9:30-9:45 Small Group: Literacy/Math/Science
9:45-10:45 Free Choice (includes special activities like art, science, & cooking)
10:45 -10:50 Clean-up
10:50-11:00 Alpha-friends circle/goodbyes
Please call to schedule a visit and when you meet the Site Supervisor ask her to show you our parent board where you will find weekly lesson plans, daily schedules, menus and parent participation activities.
