Parent Education

Helping Parents help their Children

Our Parent Education programs at the Pacific Grove Adult Education Center were designed with one goal in mind: to help parents help their children succeed. Our two distinctive parent education programs - the pre-school Co-op and Parent's Place - not only provide appropriate developmental experiences for children but emphasize effective teaching and parenting skills to assist and improve their children's academic success. This is largely attained through parent cooperation within the classrooms, reinforcing time-tested parenting techniques and best educational practices. 

Pacific Grove Adult Education

Co-op Preschool Program

1025 Lighthouse Ave
Pacific Grove, CA, 93950

Program Description

The Pacific Grove Adult Education Co-op Preschool Program is a parent participation preschool for children ages three years through kindergarten entry.  Our program is designed to create an environment that provides optimum opportunity for growth.  Physical, emotional and social skills are developed through developmentally appropriate activities in art, music, science and play.  Emplasis is on the development of the whole child.

It is our goal to acknowledge each child where he or she is upon entering preschool and taking them as far as they can go.  It is also paramount that children leave our preschool feeling confident, capable and knowing that school is a nice place to be - a place where they will be safe, valued and successful.

Our preschool classes are located on Pine Avenue and the Pacific Grove Adult Education Campus.  We offer a morning and afternoon class for our Pine Avenue classroom and morning classes for our Dual Language (Spanish) and Lighthouse classrooms which are located on the PGAE campus on Lighthouse Avenue.

Parents' Place

Parents' Place is part of the Parent Education program located at the Pacific Grove Adult Education Campus.  Our program provides parents and caregivers with information to nurture their children in a positive, healthy and loving environment.  We offer Age-related classes for babies from birth to 3 years and Specialty classes from birth through the 5th yearl.

Parents attend all classes with their child.  Each class provides an atmosphere of support and comfort, which encourages the building of a community of parent-to-parent relationships.

We encourage students to observe a class for the first time.  After the first class, registration is required for the rest of the session in order to attend the class.
