As of July 2015, FIRM has partnered with local child care experts, Children’s Services Network (CSN) to operate a state-subsidized preschool at the FIRM campus. The preschool is now called the CSN-FIRM Preschool and provides the highest-quality child care services as required by the State of California (it is a fully licensed preschool).
To be eligible:
*children must be 3 years old and fully potty trained
*child must have physical, TB test clearance and immunization card
* required paperwork completed with CSN
Our Curriculum and Goals:
The preschool uses a culturally congruent, enriched, Reggio-inspired curriculum with an emphasis on language and literacy development. The primary goal of the preschool is to prepare children to be ready for formal education. Staff ratios are kept low for personal attention, with one teacher for every eight children, Participating in the CSN-FIRM Preschool results in children who can maintain healthy, respectful family relationships while also showing initiative and becoming capable of meeting American public school cultural expectations.
Our Schedule and Rates:
The Preschool is open from 7:00 AM-5:30 PM Monday-Friday. Children are fed breakfast, lunch and a snack daily. Nap time is from 12:30-2:30.
