Special program offered for new kindergartners with no pre-school experience

City, school district partnering with county's 'Every Child Counts' plan

The city of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Unified School District are partnering with Alameda County's "Every Child Counts" program to offer a free pre-Kindergarten program this summer at Valley View Elementary School.

Valley View is located at 480 Adams Way in Pleasanton.

The four-week program starts next Monday and lasts from 8:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. It is specifically designed for children entering kindergarten in the fall who have not had prior pre-school or child care experience.

The program features a safe and nurturing environment that will better enable these students to transition to kindergarten, said city spokeswoman Joanne Hall. It also provides families and staff the opportunity to identify students who need additional support and create a bridge to the student's home school site to ensure that the appropriate support is provided.

For more information, and to determine if a child is eligible for the program, contact Pleasanton's Becky Hopkins at (925) 931-3432 or by email at bhopkins@ci.pleasanton.ca.us.
