The Pacific Grove Adult Education Co-op Preschool operates as part of the school's Parent Education Program. This is a parent education preschool program for children ages three years through kindergarten entry. Our program is designed to create an environment that provides optimum opportunity for growth for both parent and child. Physical, emotional and social skills are developed through developmentally appropriate activities in art, music, science and play. Emphasis is on the development of the whole child. It is our goal to acknowledge each child where he or she is upon entering preschool and taking them as far as they can go. It is also paramount that children leave preschool feeling confident, capable and knowing that school is a nice place to be - a place where they will be safe, valued and successful.
Our goal is to continue to provide parents the support they need to help their children be academically and socially/emotionally successful in school. We want to ensure that all of our preschool children are ready to start Kindergarten when the time comes. We also offer a Dual Language Parent Education Co-op class that embeds Spanish into daily lessons, where children acquire second language skills through games, movement, music and thematic play.
