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, recommendations, or advice is appreciated. thanks! musician mom



Hi, my girl has been in the program for more than 2 years. She started when she was 9 months, now she is almost 3 . She love to go to the school. The teachers are nice, the place is relly clean and they have a good curriculum. Few month ago they have a big inspection from the goverment and they had a excellent evaluation. You are free to visit the school and talk with the teachers My girl is in 6 TH STREET program. Very happy mom Maria

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.

Thank you,
