Are you a parent or caregiver of school age children?

Do you want to help your children succeed in school? SBCAE members offer ESL classes for parents at K-12 school sites and have parenting classes at the adult school or community college. Some members even offer preschool programs on site! In addition, most Adult School ESL classes include lessons on understanding and navigating the US education system. 

Interested in a career in early childhood education? We offer different pathways for you to become a teacher assistant, childcare provider or para-educator.

Parenting classes

Raising Resilient Children (Santa Clara Adult School)


Wilson Preschool at the Santa Clara Adult School campus is a parent participation and parent education preschool where parents and children learn together. We use a developmentally-appropriate curriculum based on the HighScope model where children learn through hands-on experiences and active play. We respect and celebrate our families’ diversity and provide a safe and nurturing environment. Parents actively participate in their children’s classrooms once a week. Through their participation, parents learn ways to foster their children’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative development.
