More than 150 at-risk young children will receive high quality early childhood education thanks to Mi Escuelita Preschool opening two new sites in Dallas and expanding its partnership with Uplift Education. The new sites are:
1. Uplift White Rock Hills - 7370 Valley Glen Drive, Dallas, TX 75228
2. Mi Escuelita Casa View located in East Dallas (11540 Ferguson, Dallas, TX 75228
Now in its 3rd year, Mi Escuelita's partnership with Uplift provides Pre-K for four Uplift schools. Children enrolled in these charter partnership classrooms will matriculate directly to Uplift kindergarten, eliminating worry for parents about where their preschooler will attend kindergarten. Mi Escuelita will have four half-day classes at Uplift White Rock Hills, providing award-winning preschool for a total of 80 children.
The Casa View location will have four full-day classrooms, including three Head Start classrooms and one Private classroom. Head Start is provided free of charge to families who qualify for the program. Private students' families are assessed tuition on a flat fee of $400 per month or $100 per week. Preschools are open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, offering a full day educational program and extended care.
"Our mission at Mi Escuelita is to teach English to children of all cultures and to help families make sure their child is Kindergarten ready," said Gayle Nave, President and CEO of Mi Escuelita Preschool. "Through Mi Escuelita's expansion and partnerships, we are able to educate more children and help more families.
