San Carlos School District Announces New Preschool Program.

by Chuck Gillooley

Open October 2010

The San Carlos School District unveiled their plans today for an all new District pre-school for the San Carlos community.    The new pre-school will be at Heather Elementary School, with the first class commencing this fall.    The creation of a tuition-based pre-school is very much in line with Superintendent Dr. Craig Baker’s plan to bolster the school district’s financial position by offering value-added services to the community.    With all of the new families that have moved into San Carlos over the past few years, I’m sure this pre-school will be a smashing success.

Here’s the email that was released by the District this afternoon, in its entirety:

Dear San Carlos and San Carlos School District Community:

We are thrilled to announce the opening of the San Carlos School District Preschool, beginning in October 2010!  This brand new preschool will be located at Heather Elementary School, however it will be open to any children in the school district and surrounding community.

Our preschool program will offer a developmental, play-based, multi-sensory learning environment, with multi-age groupings for children ages three through five.  Our teachers are highly skilled with extensive credentials in both early childhood education and early elementary education.  The preschool will offer half day (AM or PM), part day (8:30-2:30), and full day (7:30-5:30) options.

We will soon begin accepting registration for the 2010-2011 school year (October 4th start date).  Please check the district website in the next two weeks to download registration forms, as well as additional information about program philosophy, daily schedules, and tuition rates.  In addition, if you are interested and want to begin receiving updates and information about the San Carlos School District Preschool, please feel free to join our list serve.  You may subscribe by sending an email to: preschoolprogram_news-subscribe@sancarlos.k12.ca.us

Please feel free to contact any of our district and preschool staff below:

  • I think it is great that the school district is taking this on for our kids but I do want to get this out.. San Carlos Parks and Recs Department has a Wonderful Preschool program.. I have sent both of my kids to this. My oldest is getting ready for Kindergarten in the fall and she is beyond prepared for this new adventure. Teachers Freya and Debbie as well as Annette have provide them with social skills and the basics to move on.. not to mention having great teachers in the beginning to set the pace for the rest of their school years. So before jumping in with this new program also look at the SMart Tots program. which also helps support our Parks & REc Department. I think both programs will provide excellent benefits to our children.

  • Kudos to Dr. Baker for thinking outside the box when it comes raising revenue and meeting community needs. My understanding is that an after school center is also going to open at Tierra Linda.

  • In response to Alicia — While the San Carlos Parks and Rec.’s preschool has a good reputation, I didn’t even consider it in my search, because the hours were too limiting. There are very few preschool programs that offer before/after school care in our area, and they are very expensive with loooong waiting lists. Not everybody has a stay-at-home mom or dad or nanny, so I think this is a welcome addition (and sorely needed)!

  • I noticed that 2 of the preschool teachers are current KG teachers at Heather. Does anyone know if that means Heather will be hiring 2 new KG teachers? I hope that the class size will not be increasing even more…

    • Sorry, Heather lost two good KG teachers in the budget cutbacks and they won’t be replaced.. Class size will be increased to up to 26 kids in KG this year, and the remaining kids distributed in K-1 classes. Unfortunate, but that’s the reality with school funding these days…..
