The Educare Center is coming! Cradle to kindergarten preschool education is on its way to at Barton Elementary School. “Educare is a demonstration school caring for youngsters from birth to 5 years old,” Steinhauser said. “We will be a demonstration school for the area… It will cost $14 million to build the stand-alone center, and a group including the mayor will be working to raise that money.”
Educare promotes early preschool with a low staff-to-student ratio, Steinhauser said. Long Beach will add the wrap-around programs of parent education that already is part of its early Head Start and Head Start programs, the superintendent added.
“We will be able to serve 200 children there,” Superintendent Steinhauser said of the new center.
