Here's what parents are saying about Virtual Preschool:

 

"Miss Lisa’s Virtual class is amazing. She always brings some activities which are doable for little kids to older kids and interactive that keeps kiddos' attention. During this difficult time, this class has been saving my family. My little girl could stay connected with people other than her family which could develop her social skills."

 

"Miss Lisa's Virtual Fun Class helped give structure to our day after schools were closed due to Covid-19. The kids were excited about crafts and experiments we did together. Miss Lisa helped guide the parents at home about how to prepare and the kids enjoyed playing games together, singing, and listening to stories, all over Zoom. Miss Lisa has a big heart for the kids and helped each child participate and feel heard and allow them a chance to connect while we are apart." 

 

"Miss Lisa's Virtual Fun class really was perfect for our stay-at-home summer. Every week Miss Lisa covered interesting and fun topics and tied it all together with games, songs, and crafts. My daughter had a great time learning about the ocean and different sea creatures, playing carnival games, camping (her favorite subject), and art. Miss Lisa’s enthusiasm for learning really showed in this."

About Our In-Person Program

The Huntington Beach Adult School’s Parent Smart Preschool offers you and your child a high quality education within the Huntington Beach Union High School District and its Adult Education System. We invite parents to become learning members of their child’s first classroom.

The Parent Smart Preschool provides children a nurturing and enriching preschool experience designed for maximum “school readiness.” Parents are provided a strong background in effective parenting, child development, and the learning process. Unlike in most preschools, all instructors are fully credentialed (preK-8 & adult) and experienced teachers.

Parent Smart parents are required to attend the Mandatory Orientation (applies to in-person classes only and no children please), two special family nights, and one parenting take-home unit. This requirement ensures that parents gain information on current “best practices” in effective parenting from our teacher specialists and also have opportunities to interact with other parents regarding the challenges and successes they are experiencing. 
 
Orientation:
  • All parents who are new to the program are required to attend. Parents who miss the Orientation will be required to pay a $25 Private Orientation Fee.
  • Parents must bring proof of negative adult TB test administered after 1/1/2019, before class starts.
  • Provide copy of the child’s immunizations and birth certificate.
  • Multiple children cannot be accommodated without multiple adult participation, homework, and fees.
