09.04.2012 | Alameda Journal Blog | Janet Levaux
First 5 Alameda County is hosting a short presentation and moderated discussion facilitated by Catherine Atkin, President of Preschool California. The discussion will take place on Oct. 2 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., in downtown Oakland.
Atkin plans to lead a discussion with project teams from five cities (Alameda, Berkeley, Hayward, Oakland, and Union City) about how family-centered school readiness programs at libraries and recreation centers have successfully reached previously underserved families and supported children’s Kindergarten readiness in low-income multilingual neighborhoods.
The discussion will include plans for sustaining services after funding and consultation through the First 5 Alameda County Neighborhood Partnership project end in June 2013.
