San Jose 


Parents interested in giving their kids a head start in early education are invited to attend a citywide preschool open house on Wednesday, August 13.

The San José Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) is holding open house events at twelve community centers, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., next month. During the open houses, activities for children will be available so that parents can explore the facilities, meet staff, and ask questions.

“This is a great opportunity for parents to come and meet our preschool teachers, tour the classrooms, and ask any questions they may have about our program,” said Hal Spangenberg, recreation supervisor at the Almaden Community Center.

“Our preschool programs at community centers expose young students to math, art and music, and kids also can strengthen their language development, along with learning social, learning, and motor skills.” Parents have several enrollment options to select for their children. Kids can attend preschool on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for $234 per month, or Tuesdays and Thursdays for $194 per month. PRNS offers an affordable monthly payment plan, and scholarships are available that can reduce costs for eligible participants.

Classes are held in the mornings from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Preschool children must be fully toilet trained by the first day of the program, which begins Monday, August 25. Registration opens on Saturday, July 26. To learn more, visit
