Kaleidoscope Play and Learn

Kids and their caregivers take part in play activities that include stories, music, game or crafts to support children’s early learning. Community services, parenting education, and child care resources available to help parents and caregivers raise healthy children.

CISC Bilingual Preschool

CISC’s Bilingual Preschools prepare children for school learning by providing a bilingual and bicultural environment. Our curriculum embraces the rich cultural and language backgrounds of families and children. The program prepares children for their first day of kindergarten by providing children with experiences that support their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, bilingual, and bicultural development. We focus on both individual and group problem-solving with teachers guiding and facilitating students’ development of critical skills.

Parent Child Home Program (PCHP)

Provides weekly home visiting services for low-income families with children 16 months to 3 years of age. In order to prepare children for pre-school and kindergarten, services focus on early-literacy skills, learning through play and strengthening the parent-child interaction. Free books and toys are provided weekly to participating families.

Child Care Health Consultation (CCHC)

Provides childcare health consultation to grandparents, aunts and uncles, other family members, friends, and neighbors who help families take care of their children. CISC recognizes the tremendous role of these Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) caregivers in providing continuity of language, culture, and values to immigrant families and a nurturing, healthy, and supportive environment for the children in their care. We support FFN caregivers by providing information, resources, and support to strengthen their skills in guiding children’s physical, social-emotional, and cognitive development and kindergarten readiness.
