    Greetings Preschool Families,


    I hope this message finds you and your family well and hope you are managing the challenging times. As you know, information about the COVID-19 situation changes daily and it impacts our lives greatly. We are here to navigate these complex times together and encourage you and your family to reach out and contact us for support.


    Starting August 10, 2020, all preschool classrooms will begin in a distance learning format. Your child's teacher and instructional assistant will be in contact with you the first week of school. Our Preschool teaching teams are incredible educators and are excited to connect with you.


    Please email me if you need anything. We are here to support.

    Oakland Unified School District is excited to welcome all children who turn three by December 2, into our high-quality Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program. 


    The ECE program strives to build a solid foundation of success for all children and their families. We believe early childhood education is a catalyst to high student achievement.


    We are committed to providing each child in our program access to a high-quality educational experience, a commitment reflected in the fact that all 28 ECE sites received a 4-star quality rating in the 2016-17 school year


    Our promise to provide kindergarten readiness will be accomplished through instruction, assessment and curriculum that is developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate. The curriculum includes instruction in early literacy, math, science, art, physical development, and social/emotional development and is rooted in the California Preschool Learning Foundations.


    OUSD is the contractor for the State and operates the program through its Early Childhood Education (ECE) Department. ECE is responsible for ensuring that all local, State and Federal requirements are met. ECE operates under Title 5 and Title 22 regulations and adheres to California Education Code.
