Early Childhood Education

Early Childhood Education operates 10 child development centers located in Bakersfield, Lamont, McFarland, Shafter and Wasco. We serve more than 1,000 preschool children from low-income families.

It is our goal to support the family in its child-rearing role by establishing a positive partnership between the staff and family. All children are cared for in a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate classroom with highly qualified staff. Children will have daily opportunities to learn new and exciting concepts
through purposeful play.
