La Casa De Don Pedro Head Start – First Street

About Our School

La Casa de Don Pedro is a Head Start/PreK early childhood center. We have six preschool classrooms and four infant toddler classrooms with certified teachers and highly qualified instructional staff. We offer a full day high quality preschool program for children ages 3-5. Our program recognizes that children mature at different stages, and they come from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. In a nurturing and educational setting, students can develop the necessary skills and abilities to achieve academic success. Our commitment to our community is to implement developmentally appropriate practices for all children in a safe and healthy learning environment as they grow. Our program provides bilingual and multicultural educational learning opportunities, technology, field trips, parent engagement and family support.
