Fortune Preschool is now open with campuses in Elk Grove and San Bernardino. Serving two- year olds through five year olds, Fortune Preschool is a tuition-based program where we accept child care subsidies from your local resource and referral agency. “Now Fortune School prepares scholars for their future college dreams, starting with a play-based early childhood education,” said the school’s founder, Dr. Margaret Fortune.
“The program, which runs from 7am to 6pm creates a high-quality learning experience for children and adults alike by allowing students to learn through play”, said Myra Espinoza, Executive Director of Fortune Preschool. Preschool teachers will facilitate learning units based on student interests, in a beautiful space where the environment is the third teacher alongside teachers and parents. “Objects in and around the classroom act as both a mirror - so scholars can see themselves, and as a window - so scholars can see others around them,” Mrs. Espinoza said.
