    Welcome to jaime Escalante Early Education Center

    We provide quality early education to Preschool children ages 2 to 5 years old in a safe, nurturing and engaging environment. 

    Our highly effective teaching staff is dedicated to providing our students with developmentally appropriate hands-on learning experiences that spark student curiosity.  We support students in their development of social-emotional skills, language, early math and problem solving skills.  

    We take great pleasure in our Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom where children learn to love, explore, respect and investigate the natural world around them. 

    Our expectation is that our students love school and learning, learn to be independent thinkers, grow socially, emotionally, mentally and physically in our safe, nurturing and engaging program.

    Jaime Escalante Early Education Center lays the foundation for success and a lifelong passion in learning.

    We Appreciate our Teachers!

    We Appreciate our Classified Staff Too!

    A Message from the Principal

    Ernestine Lara

    I hope to find all Escalante EEC families healthy and thriving during this difficult time.

    In transitioning into distance learning I would like to emphasize the importance for students to participate in the learning that the teachers have been providing via email, Class Dojo and Instagram.

    Please visit the school website to find your child’s teacher’s email to send any updated contact information or you may email me at with any questions or concerns.

    I want to encourage reading to your child every day, to keep the same routine every day, to teach them to help with simple chores, to engage in fun family time and to reach out to their teachers if they or you need support.

    This is all a new normal for us, so we tremendously appreciate your support and flexibility. We must work together as a team, therefore, parents/guardians please be supportive of your children, be patient with them, remember this is stressful for them too.  Parents/guardians please maintain constant and consistent weekly communication with teachers.

    Please stay healthy and safe.

    I miss all of my Escalante EEC Jaguars!

    Love,  Mrs. Lara
