AUSD F5 Video
In 2004, Alisal partnered with First 5 of Monterey County (F5MC) as if the School Readiness Initiative. In 2011, AUSD along with other community agencies began the playgroup program for children ages 0-5 and their families. This program began with six playgroups and has now expanded to 21 playgroups throughout the Alisal Union School District. The focus of these playgroups is to facilitate and build awareness of healthy play and developmental learning skills as children prepare for success in pre-school and kindergarten by maximizing their child's learning potential. Children and parents learn together through creative play, stimulating curiousity, problem-solving, learning how to work and play with other children as well as independently. Parents are also invited to attend various parenting series such as Poisitve Discipline and Abriendo Puertas. These sessions allow parents to network with other parents in the community, the importance of social/emotional wellness in young children and their family, community resources as well as developing a positive relationship with your child's school. Our First Five porgram also has a Care Coordinator on staff to support families in need with a vareity of resources.
