I'm interested in enrolling my son in one of the Small Fry preschool classes through the Alameda Rec and Parks department in the fall. There are five locations, and I would like opinions on any and all of them. I would also appreciate opinions on the program in general. Many thanks!

I've been a kindergarten teacher in Alameda for over 6 years and I can tell you that pretty much all of the kids coming to me from the parks and rec preschool (Tiny Tots) have had the classroom and social skills they need for kindergarten.

From what I can tell, Tiny Tots does a good job at teaching social skills, circle time skills, and the other basics I'd like a child to have before entering kindergarten (writing name, waiting for a turn, listening to a story, etc.).

Personally, I would love to be able to send my own child to the Tiny Tots program. You can't beat the price, and it does the things I believe a preschool should do.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you about any specific locations - sorry! My students tend to come from the middle of the island, though. Hope this info helps. Alameda Teacher and Mom of a 2 year old
