We held our 2nd Annual Preschool on Saturday, July 28 at SJCC-Milpitas. Attendees received information on preschool options in Milpitas, the importance of a preschool experience and how parents can help their children in preschool. Special thanks to Dr. G. Lopez, from CDC in providing an engaging presentation and Micheal Mooney from SJCC-Milpitas in providing the facilities for our fair.
