As parents of preschool age children in our community, you are fortunate to have many good early childhood programs from which to choose. The task you have is to find the "best fit" for your children and family. Community is special because of the extraordinary teaching staff, the continuity and stability of the programs, and the rich diversity represented by our families, ethnically, culturally and socio-economically. For 61 years, we have been providing high quality, affordable early childhood programs to meet the varying needs of parents and children in our community. We hope we will have the opportunity to show you who we are, and what we have to offer you and your child.
