Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for the time, treasure, and talent you have invested for our children, our families, and our organization.

We have been monitoring developments related to COVID-19, and given the Governor's recommendations and our deep care for the health of our families and community, we are following the County's decision that MECK Pre-K Centers will close for a minimum of 15 days (Tuesday, March 16, - Tuesday, March 31, 2020) for all of our on-site programming.

These past few days, our leadership team, teachers, and staff have been focused on ensuring our children continue to build the skills they need to succeed and our families have access to the resources they need to thrive. We continue our commitment to delivering a high-quality dual language preschool education. We also deeply care for all our staff and their financial stability; therefore, we will continue all operations remotely.

In challenging times we have the opportunity to let our true nature – compassion – shine. Keep showing the strong, tight-knit community we are, and be especially mindful of the most vulnerable – the marginalized, our elders, and those with compromised immunity and respiratory challenges.

Read below for a list of resources and tools as we navigate this situation together. With love and compassion we will overcome.
