Welcome to Rob Reiner
We still have openings for preschool during the spring of 2013! You may come into our office, room 109, or call us at (951) 657-1441. If your child will attend kindergarten during the 2013-2014 school year, our preschool program will help ease the transition to elementary school.
We will soon have forms online that you can download and complete prior to your appointment for registration. This will help in decreasing the amount of time needed to register.
Our State Preschool Program, funded by the California Department of Education is for children who will be three or four by October 1 for the 2013-2014 school year. Children attend five days per week for three hours per day. Our goal is to reduce barriers for children to become ready for kindergarten. Our curriculum focuses on language development, emotional, social and physical growth. When you visit our classrooms, you will see children involved in centers such as science, dramatic play, music, art, large or small motor development, or involvement with books or language activities. Our children are also introduced to Alpha Friends, which is used at the elementary schools in the Perris Elementary School District.
Our Quality and Access Program, funded by First 5, Riverside, is a program for children who will be three or four by October 1, 2013. Children attend school five days per week for three hours per session. The goals of this program are the same as for state preschool.
The Children's Mental Health agency, a recipient of a grant from First 5, Riverside, offers a Set 4 School Program which focuses on emotional/social help for our students. Dinosaur School is offered to children who attend preschool or kindergarten and are having difficulties in paying attention, or getting along with others. Incredible Years Parenting Series is offered free of charge to parents in English and Spanish who have a child age 0-5. This wonderful program benefits new parents as well as parents who have had a lot of experience.
We encourage all parents and interested adults to volunteer in the classroom, attend some workshops, or help from home. Donations are always welcome for items such as cotton balls, pom poms, flour, glue sticks, etc. Ask your teacher how you help! All assistance is greatly appreciated! Any parent who would like to volunteer more than five times per year will need to complete a volunteer packet, have a negative TB test and be cleared through Megan's Law.
We have a speech and language therapist who provides assessment and testing following interventions for speech delays. We also have been the host site for the Community Based English Tutorial classes (ESL for adults) that is held twice weekly.
Our bookmobile arrives weekly on Monday mornings at 11:30 a.m. and is open for anyone to utilize, even if you are not enrolled at Rob Reiner.
Riverside County Office of Education has an Audiological/Deaf and Hard of Hearing Itinerant Program on site, with expert audiologists that screen children, and two model Autistic Preschool classes. Riverside County also has a Children’s Mental Health Program for children that are having difficulties in behavior management or emotional issues.
