The City of Pinole Recreation Department offers two preschool progams for children 3 years to 5 years of age. These programs are designed to offer your child both a social and educational experience. Activities include age appropriate academics, crafts, cutting with scissors, using glue and paste, painting, circle time, show & tell, music, science, and storytime.

The Tuesday-Thursday classes are designed for your child's first preschool experience. Learning activities emphasize social skills, following directions, small and large motor development, and an introduction to shapes, colors, and sizes.

Our Pre-Kindergarten programs on Monday-Wednesday-Friday for 4-year-olds build on the skills learned in the Tuesday-Thursday class and introduce ideas and concepts they will need in Kindergarten the following fall, including numbers (pre-math), letters (pre-reading), recognizing their printed name and printing it themselves. The Pre-Kindergarten class offers "hands-on" cooking experiences such as making applesauce, "Stone" soup, or mixing dough, with further opportunities to develop their fine and large motor skills.

Our regular 9 month school year runs from September through early June. We also offer a summer session. The monthly fees for the classes are listed below.
