Early Childhood Education thrives in Santa Cruz, despite restrictions

On Talk of the Bay we talk Early Childhood Education with Lisa Mendez, preschool director at Simcha Preschool in Aptos and Sarah Mast, known by her biggest fans as Teacher Sarah, who teaches at the Watsonville Cooperative Preschool. Simcha is open and running as a largely outdoor preschool/pre-K/kindergarten program. Watsonville Coop, under the umbrella of PVUSD, is still fully remote. How are these two very different preschools coping? How are their parents doing? What lessons have preschool directors and teachers learned during this time of disruption? And most importantly, what are some tips for the beleaguered parents of preschoolers who need a break? Join us.
