Superman, Iron Man, Captain America and 90 other superheroes came to our Duarte Preschool classrooms to celebrate "Hero Day" on Friday, October 27. They weren't the fictional caped crusaders though, these were our preschoolers' real heroes - their dads, grandfathers, foster fathers, uncles, and brothers. The true male role models that are making a positive difference in our youngest students' lives. These special gentlemen spent the day learning alongside their little loved-ones and participated in math games, outdoor play, reading, storytelling, STEM projects, and lunch with the children. The "Heroes” also received instruction and resources on the importance and positive effects of male involvement in their children’s education. Parent involvement has long been one of the cornerstones of Duarte Preschool, and the special men in our students' lives are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the program. Duarte Preschool offers both State Preschool for income eligible families, and fee-based programs.
