Community Gatepath opened the doors to our newest program – and our first location in Santa Clara County – on February 24th at the City of Mountain View Learning Links Preschool. Here 96 children ages six weeks to five years participate in an exciting play-based curriculum that is enhanced by extracurricular activities such as music, dance, and soccer.

Learning Links Mountain View is uniquely rooted in the local community. On weekdays, our preschoolers learn, play and laugh on the school playground, which is an amazing space with water features, shade trees, and musical instruments; the space is then open to the public during afterschool hours as part of Rengstorff Park.

The children often walk to the neighboring Senior Center to visit and celebrate special occasions, such as Halloween and Valentine’s Day, with their older friends. They also enjoy a weekly outing to the bookmobile for story time and to check out books.

Most importantly, Learning Links is committed to serving the wider Mountain View community by addressing a growing educational inequity and ensuring children of all abilities and income levels have access to the same quality early learning experiences.

We are excited about this opportunity to replicate our successful inclusion model from Learning Links Burlingame, where children with and without special needs already learn alongside each other.

Our goal is to launch inclusive services in Mountain View at the beginning of 2015 when 16 children with special needs will join our two-year-old classrooms. We are also aiming to increase the number of spaces reserved for children from low-income families to 30% over the next two years to encourage their preschool participation and improve long-term educational outcomes.
