El Centrito Preschools
El Centrito’s preschool
programs are designed to promote and increase English literacy skills
among children of Oxnard in order to improve educational outcomes.
This goal is interwoven with a commitment to enhance parent’s
role as their children’s first teacher by fostering parent
leadership and involvement. El Centrito's Preschool Programs utilize
evidence-informed curricula, including the “Creative Curriculum”
and the Waterford Early Reading Program to achieve this goal.
Program funding is provided primarily by First 5 Ventura County via the Oxnard Neighborhood for Learning.

How are Parents involved?
El Centrito is committed to actively involving parents by fostering parent leadership, emphasizing the value of reading to their children, and enhancing their role as their children's first teacher. To achieve these goals, all parents of children involved in the program are required to participate in monthly training workshops that promote a rich learning environment at home. Parents also commit to do volunteer work with El Centrito throughout the course of the program. These volunteer opportunities give parents and children a strong sense of connection to the school and to El Centrito’s mission.
