“Pasitos” California State Preschool Program


Our “Pasitos” California State Preschool Program (CSPP) provides a comprehensive preschool experience for children ages 3 to 5 and low-income families. Through hands-on experiences and activities, we provide a safe, structured environment for children to grow, learn, and play in.

Please note that in order to keep our families and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made several changes to our program.

A summary of changes is below:

  • We are currently only offering classes via video conference (Zoom). Our offices are only open for enrollment assistance and other administrative tasks.
  • We are offering five grab-and-go meals on a weekly basis rather than our regular daily meals.
  • All health and referral services are currently being done via video conference (Zoom).

Program Options

We offer a 12-month program for full-day services and a 10-month program for half-day services. Families can choose the option which best suits their needs.

“I have had 3 of my children in the ‘Pasitos’ program and they are all excelling in elementary. I expect the same for my youngest, who is doing well thanks to her ‘Pasitos’ teachers!”
