"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood." - Fred Rogers
The Alameda Recreation and Park Department's Preschool offers a play-based, recreational program for children ages 3 to 5 years old (Pre-Kindergarten). This program has been serving the City of Alameda for over 50 years and is a great opportunity for your child to develop their social skills while possibly making lifelong friends. Come join us as we use a variety of tools to help your child learn about the world around them through ABC's, numbers, colors, and shapes. Every day will bring a new day of discovery.
ARPD Programs follow all Alameda County Health protocols. This includes masks, hand washing, facility cleaning and small groups. Safety for participants, staff and community is our top priority.
Registration for the 2020 Fall Session is underway!
Please provide details regarding your child's medical needs and/or any physical, emotional or developmental disabilities he/she may have.
Safety is of the utmost importance for all ARPD participants. Providing ARPD with this information is necessary so that we may determine if and how we can safely support your child. Accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis with a Program Supervisor.
