Re: Affordable preschool in Albany or El Cerrito?
Hello... I have been a single mom of twins since they were ten months old... Today they graduated from kindergarten and I am so proud... They got their first school setting experience at Balboa Head Start.. It is located just two blocks off of San Pablo Avenue at Madison... landmarks are Big 5 sporting goods and derweinersnitzal hot dogs... If I remember the address is 1001 South 57th Street... officially this is in Richmond.. They loved it.. and even started out in separate classrooms... they adjusted better than I did... hahahah... They are through the county and will work with your income and ability to pay...If you want more info feel free to write back... I hope this helps... Good Luck!!! joann
I am considering putting my son in the Berkeley Head Start(the
one on San Pablo Ave) next fall and is wondering if anyone has
anything (good or not so good) to say about the program. Also,
my family is low income so are there any other preschools out
there (between ''a nice part of Richmond'' and Berkeley...we live
in El Cerrito) that are on a sliding scale? Thanks for any and
hi, our child will be starting headstart in the fall and we are having a hard time finding recommendations for schools and teachers. if you know anyone who has a recommendation (pro or con) please let me know. thanks! mere
Our children qualify for the Berkeley Headstart program. Please send us your thoughts (pro's and con's) regarding the Berkeley Headstart Program for 3-5 year olds. We are trying to decide whether to send our children to the Headstart program or to another preschool in the east bay area. Thanks.
Does anyone have any positive or negative experiences with any of the Head Start programs (Berkeley/Albany YMCA or Oakland) or Child Development Centers (Oakland Unified School District or Emeryville)? I'm specifically looking for feedback on programs that are around North Oakland/South Berkeley. I see on the website there is one review of the Berkeley/Albany YMCA Head Start program, but wondering if folks have anything to say about any other Head Starts and about Child Development Centers and how they compare. Thanks! Isaiah
All in all, I've been very grateful to the Head Start program for supporting our family through crisis, and for helping me with childcare so I could finish school. Today, my child is healthy, and I have a meaningful career in nonprofit development.
Hi everyone, we are looking into preschools and toddler programs for our 2 year old and I am wondering if anyone has had experience with the berkeley/albany early head start program? We are a low income family, and are wondering if they might be an option for us. Of course our main concern is that our daughter be in a safe, stimulating, environement where she can socialize with other kids. Probably just a few mornings a week to start. Any thoughts, reccommendations, or advice is appreciated. thanks! musician mom
The Head Start program is free childcare for families who are at Federal Low-Income guidelines. Our program serves Berkeley, Albany and Emeryville but there is also a program in Oakland and Fremont, as well as other counties nearby. We serve children 0-5 years old. Our infant/toddler program currently has a huge waiting list, however, our 3-5 year old program is always excepting applications and we are not 100% enrolled for September 1, either. Last year our program was not fully enrolled and we are trying to make sure this does not occur again.
