PWW increases early-learning opportunities for children ages zero to five years by championing the role of the parent/caregiver in their child’s future success in school. By using easily replicated activities in readily available community-based locations, PWW promotes the use of public space as natural congregating and learning environments. PWW staff engage parents, caregivers and their children through activities that support cognitive and motor skills, social-emotional development, and school readiness. Take-home activity guides and age appropriate books, in addition to low-cost learning materials for at-home use, reinforce class material and encourage ongoing learning outside of class. The successful model is also designed to foster mutual support among parents and help them to build social networks over time with long-term benefits beyond the program. PWW provides a natural forum for participating parents and caregivers to offer and receive advice and guidance on parenting and linkages to local, community resources. Learning is furthered by materials provided by the Bring Me A Book Foundation (see below for more information).

In Partnership with PBS SoCal, we also offer a science, technology, engineering + math (STEM) component to our existing early learning curriculum that focuses on five fundamental principals: 

• Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide a critical foundation for successful learning

• Social-emotional competence is a significant factor in school success

• Constructive, purposeful play supports essential learning

 • The physical environment affects the type

 • Quality of learning interactions and teacher-family partnerships promote development and learning

What parents are saying about pww...

“I am so thankful for this program.  I only have a part-time job and wouldn’t be able to afford $1,000 a month for preschool.” 

“I like that the kids learn by singing and playing.  If we just lecture, they won’t learn as much.”

“It’s great that the science activities allow kids to feel the texture of different things.  The hands-on learning is helpful.”
