Our pre-schools in Redwood City, Menlo Park and East Palo Alto need some extra hands for our 2015-2016 school year. We are looking for dedicated volunteers, especially those who have a focus on Early Childhood Development, to come one or two mornings a week for 1 - 2 1/2 hours between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Family Connections is a tuition-free, parent participation, bi-lingual (Spanish, but Spanish is not required for volunteers) preschool for low-income families in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. In our innovative program, parents participate in preschool classes with their children, ages newborn to five years. We have two program focuses: first a children's pre-school, which is a complete early child development program, and second, a parent education program. We need energetic, kid-loving adults to help with pre-school activities - from science and painting projects to reading books. (Ability to speak Spanish is *not* required!) We have three locations: Redwood City, Menlo Park and East Palo Alto. Check us out at www.familyconnections.org. Interview, proof of negative TB test, and fingerprint/background check (at our expense) are required.
Please contact me for more information and to volunteer!
