Preschool is a child’s first step towards college success

KidWorks operates an award-winning, state-licensed preschool for students living in Santa Ana.  In Santa Ana, only 44% of children enter Kindergarten developmentally ready, making preschool vital to a child’s future.

“Nadia was our first child, and we wanted to provide her with a quality education that focused on academics, social and emotional development. Thankfully a friend told us about KidWorks preschool. When I dropped Nadia off at KidWorks, I knew we were in good hands.

Over the year, I watched her blossom. It’s reassuring to know that KidWorks will partner with our family over the next 18 years to provide the skills, resources and support needed for Nadia to graduate from college someday.  I am truly grateful for KidWorks preschool!”
